Captain Donald Anderson has been named Darien Chief of Police.

He will take over as the Darien Police Department’s 11th Chief of Police when Chief Ray Osborne retires at the end of the summer, according to the Darien Police Commission.

Anderson has been a member of the Darien Police Department since 1983, and currently holds the position of Captain of the Administrative Services Bureau.

He was promoted to the rank of Sergeant in 1999, Lieutenant in 2000, and to his current rank of Captain in 2013.

He has also served as a member of the Detective Division and as a member of the Specialized Accident Investigation Team.

Anderson is a state-certified Motor Vehicle Accident Investigation Instructor.

He is also a graduate of the 245th session of the FBI National Academy.

He holds a bachelor’s degree in criminal justice from Sacred Heart University and a master’s degree in criminal justice from Iona College.

He is the son of the late Bruce M. Anderson, who also served as Darien’s Chief of Police from February 19, 1988, to July 3, 1993.

"In the coming weeks, we will be working closely together to ensure a smooth transition," said Osborne.
