Expert's Profile

Greg has formed the On-Target Solutions Group, Inc. www.on-targetsolutionsgroup.com to focus on leadership, employees and processes, and is dedicated to developing the proper leadership and organizational continuity that is needed for government organizations to move forward. Greg instructs nationally on a variety of topics and consults nationally on internal affairs, professional standards issues, policy development, leadership and supervision topics. He has consulted with agencies across the country and is a certified Force Science® Analyst. He has also served on the International Association of Chiefs of Police committee on Professional Standards, Image and Ethics.

He began his career with the Aurora (IL) Police Department and held a variety of positions up to Deputy Chief of Police. As Deputy Chief, his role was to direct the day-to-day operations of the police department with over 430 full time employees. During his career, Aurora went from a city with a population of 80,000 to the second largest City in Illinois at 200,000. His experiences were broad across every area of the Aurora Police Department.

Greg also held the position of Chief of Police for the Village of Campton Hills, Illinois. Campton Hills was a unique experience in that he started a full-service police department within a newly formed municipality. He developed from the “ground up” every facet of law enforcement services including equipment, policies and procedures, budgets, development of community and government relations, training of staff, and the oversight of a full-service law enforcement agency. And, given his overall experience, he was also tasked with assisting others within the Village on government operations and contacts, ultimately helping to structure the governmental base for Campton Hills.

Greg finished his law enforcement career as the Chief of Police in Oak Forest, Illinois. He moved the department forward in every facet of law enforcement services. As being the only Chief of Police selected from outside the department, the teamwork approach that he utilized was extremely successful in implementing changes in an established department that had been resistant to change. His focus was on establishing “best practices” for the department to enhance the professional delivery of police service to the community. The efforts at the Oak Forest Police Department earned them accreditation through the Illinois Law Enforcement Accreditation Program.

Chief Anderson has a Master’s degree in Law Enforcement and Justice Administration from Western Illinois University and a Bachelor’s degree from The Union Institute and University in Cincinnati, Ohio. He has also attended many executive management and leadership courses throughout his career and serves on the Board of Directors for the Illinois Commission on Diversity and Human Relations.

Greg has testified in hundreds of civil and criminal trials throughout his career as well as employment arbitration cases.
