CHARLESTON, S.C. — John Lites strode through the gritty streets of Charleston's East Side, flashing smiles, shouting greetings, shaking hands. He inquired about a man's gardening plans, scooped up stray litter from sidewalks and chatted with a little boy about oiling his rusty bike chain.

If one looked past his blue uniform and the sergeant's stripes on his sleeves, Lites seemed more like a friendly resident on a stroll than a chief enforcer of the law in these parts. And that's just the way he likes it.
