Sammy Lowry met his hero today, Mayor Knox White. Family and friends refer to Sammy as the Mini Mayor of Greenville as he has an overwhelming desire to give back to the Greenville community. Today Sammy was invited to the Greenville Council Chambers where he conducted his first meeting and Mayor White’s office where he was presented with a Mini Mayor shirt. #minimayorofgreenville

Stopping glass recycling is absolutely insane. People are using more glass nowadays because they know that it is the safest material in food/drink/medicine packaging. Glass is NOT BIODEGRADABLE - it ...would take a million years if not longer for one single bottle to be decomposed. Do we even realize what's gonna happen to our counties (first Spartanburg county has stopped accepting glass at their recycling locations, now Greenville county will do the same beginning April 1) within a few years? All those glass containers and bottles are gonna end up in the environment until we're up to our ears in glass.
Regardless of the cost of the new machinery and equipment, the investment is worthy in the long run if we still want to live a healthy life in a decent environment. Unless, of course, we find a new eco-friendly biodiagradable material to substitute glass with. We all know that bpa-free plastic is a joke.

Way to screw the pooch on construction and detours today specifically. Continuing detours and construction past the 5am mark, thereby causing massive delays. Then its announced you will still be roadwork tom, a day when many are traveling.
But hey, you're halting constructiin and detours thanksgiving day, when very few will be on roads. Thats brilliant (not really)

Not only are there great peop...le to meet and make lifelong friendships with, Greenville is an awesome city in which to raise a family. There is so much to do and see...from cultural and arts events, great dining, and lots of recreational opportunities. We especially love all the parks. Absolutely an awesome place to live! See More

Greenville used to be the best kept secret but the cats out of the bag!! The best people, restaurants, schools, housing, low taxes, and shopping. So close to the mountains and the beach and nestled be...tween Charlotte and Atlanta. Love my hometown! See More

Your handling of the Flaggers at the NCAA event was appalling. These folks were peaceful, and caused no harm to anyone, but your police force treated them as criminals, and and made then stop their pe...aceful protest. They have a right to a peaceful protest as much as anyone else, and you buckled under the pressure from the NCAA? Why? The NCAA doesn't even know what restroom men are supposed to use! Had the shoe been on the other foot, and this been a Black Lives Matter march you would of welcomed them with open arms, even though they want to kill you police. Wonder no more why the public doesn't trust it's government, or it's police to do the right thing. See More

I've lived in the Greenville area since 1976, and have seen its transformation! There was a time when parts of downtown seemed dead or dangerous. Now, there is natural beauty, culture, a vibrant arts... scene, culinary excellence, theatre and more. Maybe a wee bit too much construction going on right now .... hope the growth is kept in check. Yeah, THAT Greenville. See More

Greenville Police Department

Today marks the second anniversary of Allen Jacobs, who died serving the people of Greenville on March 18, 2016. We asked some of our officers to share thoughts... and remembrances of Jacobs. Below you'll find a small collection of these. Please feel free to leave your own. #gvlpd

“Allen Jacobs was one of my field training officers. He still motivates me a lot. What could I do today to make him proud, I often think. He was a hell of a police officer.”

– Ofc. Cole Fertitta, on Jacobs’ long-lasting effect on the department

“At the conclusion of the scheduled three days, the recruit came to me and asked if he could have permission to ride longer with Allen because he learned more from Allen in three days than he learned in all of his previous training combined. Allen was a student of the job and strived to always stay on top of the latest case law and tactics.”

– Sgt. Ed Irick, talking about Jacobs’ level of professionalism

“Allen was wearing the blue bike uniform and was chasing someone on foot across 385 one afternoon, and a caller called into dispatch and reported that a Domino’s pizza delivery guy was chasing someone across the highway. He caught the guy in a business park on the other side of the highway.”

– Ofc. Michelle Lentz, about Jacobs’ physical commitment to policing

“I tried to cut the guy off with Rocky (Burdette’s K-9 Officer), but Allen already ran him down. When I threw my hands up, Allen said, “I guess I’m just faster than Rocky!” His boys love to hear me say their dad was faster than my dog.”

– Ofc. Jeff Burdette, a K-9 handler, talking about working the same chase with Jacobs

“As a partner, Jacobs was one of the guys you wanted to have your back. He took his job very seriously, trained hard and excelled in it. I knew he would be there in any dynamic and stressful situation we encountered.”

– Ofc. Andrew Sturman, on his former partner. Sturman now drives Jacobs’ former patrol vehicle #52, which is the vehicle they shared on the road as a team.
