The man caused so much turmoil and loss of morale in the dept. that most of his lieutenants resigned and went to work for the Volusia County Sheriff's Dept. The problem in Greenville was so predictable. I myself spoke to the City Commission about the stress, mental and physical, going on within the department. While I was trying to have my say before the Commission, a troupe of "church ladies" booed and heckled me to the point that I could almost not be heard, and neither the city manager nor the mayor asked for order. Anderson had them right where he wanted them. He can charm the horns off a billy goat any day of the week. I feel very sorry for the Greenville officers. They are between a rock and a hard space. God bless them all. I hope their wives survive Bill Anderson. I don't think his wife (Bill's) even went to NC with him when he left. If she did she probably has one whopping ulcer by now, and that little boy is probably permanently emotionally scarred from all these failures. Good luck on your efforts to throw out the trash.

I can't believe the community is still reluctant to reply. I tend to believe they haven't found your Web Site.
My employer, the famous News-Journal Newspaper, has closed down all its regional bureaus, and I am one of the first 99 to go bye bye. I have until December to find other employment or else I have no health insurance. I worked hard to get a full-time status with the N-J and some precious health insurance. If my husband still had his job with the DPD, I would not be afraid of what the future brings. He would still be employed by the DPD and I could be satisfied that my husband could take care of all our financial needs.

I was there for PDwife's address to the city commission, I can vouch for everything she said above. What Billy Boy did to DPD was unbelievable. I am one of about 20 who left (out of a 60 officer dept). Bill will cultivate a small handful of loyal yes men while he pits the entire rest of the pd against one another. He is a master at setting people up for failure by either not explaining his orders (maybe he doesn't understand himself?) or giving conflicting orders, or just flat out interfering with officers trying to do their job. It got to the point there were barely enough candidates for promotional positions, officers saw what was happening to their sgts/lts. If you really want the whole scoop, get your hands on the 20+ page grievance filed by his hand-picked #2 commander, who finally got fed up with the tyranny and unethical behavior. Bill resigned a couple weeks after that bombshell, blackmailing the commission for a hefty severance pkg on the way out.

Chief Anderson is killing the Greenville Police Department with his policies. None of the officers respect him. He constantly takes points away from the officers for doing their job. He is extremely soft on crime. His policies are wishy washy and the officers are damned if they do and damned if they don't. Crime has risen and the citizens want him gone. If there is anyone out there that can help us please, please post a comment and tell us how to do it.

You are not kidding! Chief Anderson is definitly no leader and is an EXCELLENT politician. He has forgotten (or was he ever a good police officer?!) where he came from and is a tyrant as well as keeping his small group of cronies in admin close at hand. Anderson recently sent 1 officer to arrest a murder suspect at his home because the local (black) politicians wanted the accused treated fairly!! And do not think that Anderson is not a racist, ha, he sure is, he promoted several black officers very quickly and these officers are the worst officers eve on the street! I want to know where to find that 20 page complaint from Deland. Please let me know

Is there anyone that could help us get a hold of the 20+ page grievance....I would love to get a copy of it. May help our cause. The PD is in such turmoil right now and he's even kicked two great officers and a supervisor off of a unit because of false allegations from a Sgt. S. Williams that is just as dirty as he is. We need him run out and here investigated and fired for all the crap she's done over the years too.

I have been trying to get a copy..it is out there just no one must be reading this so they can send it. Ever wonder why Anderson recently opened up the 'Leadership Team' meetings to the entire department.? because no one but his kiss arse cronies are showing up! Sgt Williams is only one..Sgt C. Williams, Lt k Laws, Lt Carson, Lt R Williams, ect..hmmm, notice all have rank? are all his 'boys'. This dept. is in the darkest time since I have been here..We really could use a copy of that report!!!

If you want a boatload of information of how unfairly Bill Anderson treated his officers check with the union that was largely responsible for his demise in DeLand. Check with Teamsters Local 385 representative.

Is this the same police chief that is now head of Asheville, NC police department? If so, he has been accused of trying to coerce an officer to make false statements in a case regarding the chiefs son. And, if this is same man, how on earth does he continue to be hired by other cities? I guess Asheville does not check references. Ha!

Sure is the same Chief. That's because administrators get away with it..and I am not racist. but its also because he is black..one of the reasons Greenville jumped to hire him.
