NASHVILLE (TSU News Service) – Anthony Carter, a veteran law enforcement officer, is the new Assistant Chief of Police at Tennessee State University.
Carter, who comes to TSU after 38 years with the Metropolitan Nashville Police Department, brings a vast knowledge and experience in police management, particularly campus policing, according to TSU Police Chief Richard Briggance.
“He has a background in police training, SWAT (Special Weapons and Tactics) operation, criminal investigation and many other emergency contingencies that are very essential to our operations here at Tennessee State,” Chief Briggance said.
Carter will be responsible for the daily operation of the TSU Police Department.
“I see my job at TSU as an exciting challenge to carry out the Chief’s vision of elevating and transforming our police department into one of the best at any institution in the country,” the new assistant chief said.
Carter, who last served as Commander of the North Precinct of the Metro Police before coming to the University, said he sees his return to the institution as “a homecoming,” having attended TSU as a freshman in 1971.
“TSU is the last part of my journey back home; coming to the North Precinct was the start,” Carter said.
The longtime law enforcement officer holds a bachelor’s degree in Management and Human Relations from Trevecca Nazarene University, and a master’s degree in Public Service Management from Cumberland University. He has attended several police schools and received several commendations and achievements.
Carter, a Nashville native, is a member of the International Association of Chiefs of Police; the National Organization of Black Law Enforcement Executives; and the National Black Police Officers Association.
