The New Assistant Chief of Campus Police

Tim Anschuetz has joined Vol State Campus Police as assistant chief. He comes from the Gallatin Police Department where he was serving as sergeant in the Vice/Narcotics Unit. Anschuetz began his law enforcement career with Gallatin PD in 1999, first in Patrol, and then with the Traffic Division, continuing on as a motorcycle office. He tested and became a detective, and eventually moved up to the rank of corporal, and then sergeant.

When asked about his move to Vol State the assistant chief talked about opportunities.
“It’s a natural progression for someone in law enforcement to better themselves and progress in their career,” Anschuetz said. “The opportunity to take my base of knowledge and use it to help younger officers is one reason I took the job.”

The assistant chief said he’s enjoying working on a college campus.

“Here we’re dealing with safety and we want the environment to be such that students can succeed. We want them to feel safe here.”

He also considered the larger responsibilities of the position.

“The police here at Vol State have a unique opportunity. We can walk around and interact with younger people and show them that we really care. This is a prime place for a police officer to create change that can effect society. If we can all get along here, on campus, we can show students that police are not bad, and are here to help them.”
