SCMPD Officers Retire

Nearly a dozen people with the Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police Department have retired from the force. At a special luncheon yesterday, police chief Dan Flynn said they have all played important roles in the department.

Among those honored, 32-year veteran Maj. Dan Reynolds, who was acting chief of the Savannah Police Department for about a year, is leaving to take a job as chief of police in Greer, South Carolina. Col. Robert Oliver also retired.

He served as Chatham County police chief before the 2003 merger announcement. Since then, he has acted as the assistant to Chief Flynn.

Chief Flynn says they all will be missed. "On one hand, it's difficult to see them leave, but at the same time we celebrate their careers and wish them well in their retirement. It's well deserved and well earned."

The department also held a promotion ceremony for 17 police officers.
