City Manager Drew Griffin announced last week that Allen Heidler accepted the position of Chief of Police, effective March 4. During his 30-year tenure with the Florence Police Department, Allen has served in a variety of divisions, including patrol, traffic and investigations. As the Inspector for the City’s Police Department, Allen served under the supervision of Chief Anson Shells and was integrally involved in the daily operations of the department. He has served in the position of Interim Police Chief for the past six months. “Allen is an experienced veteran of our police department and has a comprehensive understanding of our organization and the City of Florence.
I have complete faith in his professionalism and leadership style which will serve our community and police department exceptionally well,” commented Griffin. Heidler, a Pennsylvania native, began his law enforcement career as a member of the Military Police Corps later assigned to Military Police Investigations. Active Duty assignments included Ft. McClellan, AL; Ft. Jackson, SC; and Stuttgart, Germany. Heidler joined the Florence Police Department in 1983. He is married to Katrina Sawyer Heidler and has two children, Shannon and Christopher. “I am truly honored to serve the residents of Florence,” said Heidler. “As Florence continues to grow and thrive, I look forward to leading the men and women of the Florence Police Department as we promote positive relationships within our department and the community.”
