    He'll work for a better department in a better position for a boss he likes...and his 19 years will count towards state retirement. Best of luck Kip!

    Guess he can't take any more of the corruption that's going on in Pitt Co.

    Goodness People...let the man resign. As far as Chief Anderson, well I'm sure most of "you" would NOT be satisfied with ANYTHING he did. My theory is....you can't please everyone. I wish Corporal Gaskins the best. We should be "SUPPORTING" our law enforcement, not tearing it DOWN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I hate to tell you, but, even though the chairs were bought with "a government grant", that grant DOES cost the taxpayers. Where do you think grant money comes from, the "Grant Ferry"?

    The last time I checked, grants were paid for by somebodys taxes. Just because local taxes did not pay for the chairs doesnt make it right. $1200. chairs is a waste of money. No wonder our country is broke. That money could of been used to buy more weapons or ammunition. Im sure Office Depot sells computer desk chairs for much less.

    I guess there are problems in every dept and it is sad. I live in gc. Officers come and go in GC more than they do at Walmart. There are serious problems within that dept. Most the officers still make under $30,00.00 no matter how long they have been there. These poor officers have not had a raise in several yrs. But the Sheriff can go out and buy a new county vehicle for his self to drive around in when there is nothing wrong with what he has. It is very sad to think these guys risk their lives everyday for less than $30,000.00 a year. We lost one officer this year and he left behind 2 small kids. Its time the county take a hard look at the Greene County Sheriff's Dept!! Stop looking from the outside looking in. We need to be looking on the inside.

    Dear lumpy, those chairs and other office furniture was paid for by a government grant. No cost to the taxpayers! Know your facts!!

    I hope the people of Greenville understand that GPD is going to***sorry already lost most of the good officers. The crime rate in Greenville has gotten out of control and I’m not talking about the statistics that Anderson reports to the media because statistics can be made to be what ever the person reporting them wants them to be. Example Anderson has instructed his officers to report a car or house getting shot up with bullets to be suspicious activity if nobody gets shot. This clearly and previously before he became chief was considered a more serious crime but when crime statistics are reported to the media suspicious activity doesn’t sound that bad. This is just what I’ve heard and who I’m I to dare challenge a chief who lets his wife drive around in his cop car and has the power to hire and fire who ever without answering to anyone I just live here.
