Police Detective Dan Anderson received the Law Enforcement Professional Achievement Award, presented annually by the California Peace Officers' Association (CPOA). The award recognizes peace officers who strive for and maintain a high degree of personal and professional growth and competency.

Dan Anderson began his career with the City of Newark as a Police Officer on August 16, 1986. He is currently assigned to the Investigations Division as a Detective, serving his fourth term in this capacity. He is known throughout the law enforcement community as someone who is willing to share his vast knowledge, especially in the area of fraud and identity theft.

Anderson has served as a Field Training Officer and continues to provide assistance to officers seeking his advice on investigative matters. He has been assigned as lead investigator in numerous complex and high profile cases over the years and due to his extraordinary investigative skills and interviewing techniques, many have resulted in the arrest of the involved parties.

The detective is a fine example to his fellow officers and an excellent representative of the police department, the city, and the community. Mayor David Smith commended Detective Anderson for earning one of the three Awards of Law Enforcement Professional Achievement presented statewide by the California Peace Officers' Association.
