Interim Greenville Police Chief: Taking It One Day At A Time

Greenville's newly named interim police chief says he plans to pick up right where the outgoing chief leaves off.

On February 17th Chief William Anderson will leave Greenville to head up Asheville's police department, and Deputy Chief Joe Bartlett will step in as interim chief.

Bartlett says, "I'm honored that I was asked to do it in the interim and I think we've got a good department and we're going to continue to be professional and do everything we can to protect the citizens of Greenville. I don't anticipate any changes."

We asked Bartlett if he plans to apply for the job permanently, and he said he's just taking it one day at a time.

    I hope he does more then just picking up where Anderson left off. He needs to attack crime with a heavy fist. Enough of this "Hug a Thug" program. Let the officers do their job without the micro-managing and roadblocks.

    He looks to be in much better physical shape than the outgoing Chief.

      I don't think it matters, the chiefs don't do any of the physical aspects of police duties...and willy anderson worked out in the gym daily...
