The Community Outreach Team is made up of department members whose assignments help form a bond with the community.  They work hand-in-hand with members of the residential and business communities to resolve issues and continue to keep the City of Greer a great place to live, work, and play.

Sgt. Chad Richardson supervises the work of the Community Outreach Team and takes the lead in scheduling and promoting activities and programs for the community -- events such as National Night Out to encourage security in neighborhoods, Operation Medicine Cabinet to collect unneeded and expired prescription medications, and information sessions for the business community on such topics as counterfeiting and alcohol sales.

The team includes school resource officers Steve Anderson, Perry Bowens, Joel Galli, and Ashley Wright.  They monitor local schools during the academic year and work on related issues with students, parents, and school officials during the summer.  The Team helps neighborhoods establish crime watch groups and community meetings.
