RAW VIDEO: News19's J.R. Berry Talks With Columbia Police Chief Dean Crisp
Police Chief Dean Crisp retires on September 12, 2007.
City Manager Charles Austin said the retirement will take effect in a few days, and Crisp will take a few weeks off.
Crisp was thankful to the people of Columbia, South Carolina, and everyone he works with and belabored over his thanks throughout the conference.
"I experienced some of my greatest accomplishments in Columbia," said Crisp Wednesday.He said violent crime had been reduced by eight percent, and the gang task force has arrested more than 300 potential gang members since its creation under Crisp's leadership.
The retired chief says one of his most proud accomplishments was the establishment of scholarship opportunities for the children of police officers.
At the end of his retrospective speech that graced his career in law enforcement, Crisp concluded with a final condolence.
"Thanks for sharing with me in my journey as Chief of Police," Crisp said.
City officials say even though Crisp has retired, the City of Columbia will continue their plans for a panel evaluation of the Columbia Police Department.
Crisp retired just before a city appointed review panel was to examine the department.In recent months, Crisp has allowed family members onto crime scenes, and had his department scrutinized due to high turnover and low morale.
Crisp has not directly commented on the claims, saying that it was a matter discussed between himself and Austin.
"I encourage it [the review]", Crisp says."I look forward to it.I'm 100 percent supportive.I think it would be good for our organization."
Richland County Coroner Gary Watts says Crisp allowed his father to go into a Myers Street home where a fatal shooting took place last February.
The coroner says Crisp and his father were inside where the body was located before his investigators had a chance to collect evidence.
A police spokesperson says in both cases, the family members were in the car with Crisp when he was called to the scene.
Austin named Crisp as Chief of Police for Columbia on April 7th, 2004.

Chief Dean Crisp says he believes one shooter fired between three and five shots.He says different witnesses have different accounts, but he says they have a good idea of what happened before and after the shooting.
"There was some type of gang signs exchanged, not from those who were shot, but from those in the area," said Crisp.
"Sometimes chases come up on people ..., 1 Aug 2007 [cached]
"Sometimes chases come up on people so quickly, they can only react to what's happening right in front them," explained Columbia Police Chief Dean Crisp."We understand that chases concern the public."
"All I heard was eeerk," explained Chicora Miller, who told News19 she had just picked up her daughter and nephew from school when she dodged Monday's pursuit.
"We generally pursue violators when their apprehension would prevent them from committing other crimes or committing other violations that would put the public at risk," explained Chief Crisp.
According to Chief Crisp, speed is often determined by the location of the chase."If you're going into a 45 mph zone, you have to adjust your rate," he explained."You don't want to go through there at 90 mph because people are not going to driving that fast."
Speed limit, traffic, road conditions and time of day are all factors CPD uses to determine whether of not to chase a suspect, according to Chief Crisp."We want to make sure that when we chase a vehicle, we're doing it in the safest way possible," he added.
While Chief Crisp said safety is always a top priority, Miller feels the safety of several drivers was compromised Monday."I felt like someone was going to get hurt or killed," she said.
"We have an extensive policy that governs chases in the police department," explained Crisp, who said a supervising officer must approve all police pursuits.
