Assistant Chief (Ret)
Greg Feldman has nearly four decades of law enforcement experience, beginning in the Chicago area where he worked for Northwestern University's Public Safety Department and the Northfield Police Department. In 1980 he began a 25-year career with the South Miami Police Department, where he headed, at one time or another every division of that agency, spending more than half his career in investigations and retiring in 2005 as Assistant Chief of Police. From there he spent time as the Director of Safety and Security at Johnson & Wales University in North Miami until 2007 when former Florida Attorney General Bob Butterworth tapped him to be the Southern Region Criminal Justice Coordinator for the Florida Department of Children and Families. While performing those duties he remained active in law enforcement as a Reserve Police Officer (for a dollar a year) with the West Miami Police Department. Greg retired as a West Miami Sergeant and from the Coordinator position in 2013, and relocated to Palm Coast FL.
During his tenure with South Miami he received numerous awards and certifications, including Manager of the Year, Sergeant of the Year, Officer of the Month and more. A skilled public speaker and presenter, he functioned as the department's Public Information Officer for 17 years. He created and administered the police department's asset forfeiture unit, bringing in well over $1,000,000 in criminal's ill-gotten gains. For several years he also did Internal Affairs investigations and handled several high profile cases involving agency personnel. He was on the committee which established and built the first Investigative Support Center in Miami (later South Florida HIDTA) and worked with several Federal inter and multi-agency task forces.
Assistant Chief Feldman has attended over 1000 hours of additional training, including the Criminal Justice Institute's prestigious Senior Leadership Program (class #1) and the Chief Executive Seminar. He has been a certified law enforcement instructor since 1985 and holds a Bachelors degree from the University of Oklahoma. In 2009 he was one of less than two dozen people from around the globe to attend the Institute for Analytical Investigations' two week train-the-trainer course.
His community contributions include membership with the International Association of Chiefs of Police (life), Florida Police Chief's Association, Miami Dade County Association of Chiefs of Police, Florida Criminal Justice Executive Institute Associates (former state president), Dade Miami Criminal Justice Council, Miami Dade Crimestoppers (board member), All Police Charities (board member) and Miami Dade County Mothers Against Drunk Driving (co-chair). He is a former member of the Florida Bar Grievance Committee and a current Diplomat and Trustee of the Flagler County Chamber of Commerce.
