Chief Holtzman


Mark Holtzman joined the Greenville Police Department in September 2015 as Chief of Police.  Holtzman is no stranger to law enforcement, having spent 24 years with the Hagerstown, Maryland Police Department. A graduate of the University of Baltimore, he quickly advanced through the ranks and most recently served as Chief of Police in Hagerstown before accepting the opportunity to serve in the same capacity in Greenville.

Holtzman’s varied background in neighborhood and data-driven policing has proven to be a tremendous asset for the Greenville Police Department. A forward-thinking and solution-oriented chief, Holtzman believes in addressing “real issues” facing neighborhoods to reduce the fear of crime and improve quality of life. He has a passion for changing the reputations of neighborhoods and finding unique solutions to longstanding issues.

During his time thus far with the Greenville Police Department, Holtzman has implemented a number of projects and initiatives aimed at decreasing crime and improving quality of life. Some noteworthy accomplishments include the creation of a gun violence reduction unit; the implementation of “Cops and Barbers,” a nationally-recognized program highlighted by the White House as part of a progress report on police-community relations; the rebirth of several youth initiatives; the implementation of red-light cameras and local pedestrian-safety ordinances; advocating for a city-wide LED lighting project; as well as proposing statewide hate crime legislation. Holtzman acknowledges the effective delivery of public safety can only be accomplished through a department’s partnership with the community they serve.
