Greensburg Chief of Police Stacey ...
Greensburg Chief of Police Stacey Chasteen was the first presenter of the afternoon, and she delved into the history of her department before taking questions.
Chief Chasteen noted the position of Police Chief was initially an elected office.
The term "chief' wasn't used until early in the 20th century, she
added, mentioning that the first individuals to serve in her
position were known as Marshals.
Chief Chasteen brought along an historical record of the many who have previously served in her position, which is presently designated via a Mayoral appointment.

consisted of four total officers in 1906.
In contrast, more than a century later, her
department is presently composed of 19 officers including herself.
She's hoping to add a 20th officer at some point in the future.
Chasteen explained she took on her duties in Feb. 2011 after working for several years in the GPD's Investigations division.

will not tolerate drug activity," she
