He is ALL Mine!

U.S. ARMY GARRISON SPOTLIGHT: Christopher Anderson, Police Officer

- Tell us about the work you do for the U.S. Army Garrison - Detroit Arsenal. We provide the same services to the Garrison that any police department would provide to, let’s say, a Warren or a Clinton Township, but just on a smaller scale. We have to be versed in federal, state, local and military law. I do general patrol officer duties. I’m a firearms and less lethal force instructor for the department and serve as a sniper on the Special Reaction Team. Essentially, at the end of the day, my job is to ensure the safety and security of the Garrison community.

- How long have you worked for the garrison? Three years

- What do you like about your job? I like everything about my job. Aside from my core responsibilities, I get to be out and about on the Garrison making contact with all of our employees.

- What brought you to this point? I have attended a lot of schools related to my profession, but I think the foundation was laid when I was seventeen and joined the Marine Corps. I had to grow up in a hurry and maintain that focus for the next eight years.

- What brought you to this point? After eight years in the Marines, I went on to become a fire specialist for GM, but after 9/11 I enlisted with the 127th Security Forces Squadron out at Selfridge and still remain with the unit to this day.

- What has been your favorite day so far on the job? Every day I get to go home to my wife and daughters.

- What keeps you busy outside of work? When not spending quality time with my family, I do competitive shooting.

- What are your professional goals? To maintain the current course for now and pursue promotion and advancement opportunities when they are presented.

- What is your favorite:

Sports Team - Detroit Lions
Food - anything Mexican
TV Show - Californication
Movie - anything by Stanley Kubrick

If you could meet anyone, dead or alive, who would it be and why? Chesty Puller. 5 Navy Crosses. Would love to sit down with that cat and share a cold one.

Anything you would like to add?
We are here for the Garrison and to ensure our little community stays safe and secure. We have a job to do just like everyone else here and a smile helps to accomplish that task just a little easier.
