GREENVILLE, S.C. — Greensboro Police Chief Ken Miller has been named the next police chief of the Greenville Police Department in Greenville, South Carolina.

Miller’s last day with the department is expected to be Aug. 31, 2014. Miller had announced earlier this month his plans to retire as Chief of Police in Greensboro between Sept. 1 and Dec. 31.

Miller became police chief of the Greensboro Police Department in 2010 after 21 years of service with the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department. He has a bachelor’s degree in criminal justice and political science from East Tennessee State University and a master’s degree in public administration from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte.

The city of Greenville said it received 87 applications for the position from law enforcement officials from 26 states.

Moving forward, the City has already initiated the hiring of a consultant to guide the selection for a new police chief. The hiring process will be led by City Manager Jim Westmoreland and his staff.

    HEY Chief !! Can the Greensboro taxpayers get that 30K bonus, plus all the evidence and AMMO you took with you !! Can the people get that back ? You should really give half your salary to charities !! All you did in Greensboro was teach the cops how not to keep up with the real crime numbers !! I know you were just using your friends Obammies MATH !!

    This guy is a crook and everybody knows it! He took tons of money from Greensboro and deserves to be in jail. Glad he is leaving and now I feel sorry for Greenville…But smart move you jacka$$ because now you can steal from that department too and retire before they can prove it!

    Why does the story heading say “Former Police Chief” when he is still employed there? Looks like he wouldn’t be former until he is gone.

      He only had plans to retire with a great benefit package from Greensboro… Now he’ll move on to Greenville, SC and work there a year of two and retire with full benefits from there.. probably after accepting a nice raise and assuring the city he will stay longer, like he did here. . All the while, he’ll continue to fill out applications, take their money and then go again. Must be nice to be able to take a position and only stay a couple of years and retire with full benefits…

    I attended some training with some of his folks at his current PD before all of this retirement to another announcement. They seemed miserable and were hoping he would leave their PD. Has Greenville SC been duped by his big city background?

    Well.. is he taking his “hand picked” over paid side kick, Susan Danielsen with him. Does anyone know that answer? The department and city alike would be better off if he does!
