Meet the Chief

Mark Revenew – Chief of Police

Mark Revenew joined the Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police Department on January 18, 2018 and was sworn in as the Interim Chief of Police on January 25, 2018.  Chief Revenew now leads the newly formed Savannah Police Department following the demerger of Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police Department.

Chief Revenew has been in law enforcement for more than 35 years.  He began his law enforcement career as a military policeman serving his entire enlistment at Hunter Army Airfield.  After being honorably discharged, like so many he fell in love with the Savannah area and made this his home.  He has served on the Pooler Police Department since 1984.  During his tenure, he also served on a FBI Safe Child Task Force, protecting children in the region from online predators.

Since becoming Chief of the Pooler Police Department in 2010, Pooler was repeatedly named one of the 25 Safest Cities in Georgia and one of the Best Places to Live in Georgia.  Its community-oriented policing and mission of treating everyone fairly and respectfully has earned the department a strong alliance with the business and residential community.  He serves on several professional and civic boards in the community.

Chief Revenew earned a Bachelor’s degree in Criminology from Saint Leo University and a Master’s degree in Public Administration from Georgia Southern University.  He is a graduate of the FBI National Academy.
