Andre Anderson has served as commander of the police department of Glendale, Arizona, for nearly three decades. In 2015, he briefly commanded the police department of Ferguson, Missouri, as its interim chief. Andre Anderson holds active membership in the National Organization of Black Law Enforcement Executives.

Dedicated to acting as “the conscience of law enforcement,” the National Organization of Black Law Enforcement Executives (NOBLE) represents more than 3,000 law enforcement members around the world. It also serves more than 60,000 young people through programs such as The Law & Your Community.

NOBLE designed The Law & Your Community to help teenage youth employ better communication skills when dealing with local law enforcement. The program also instructs participants to improve their general understanding of the law.

The Law & Your Community stresses the importance of law and order and encourages young people to become productive citizens and active participants in the political process. It also teaches them how to respond to police officers in the field and how to react to law enforcement misconduct both while it is occurring and after the fact.
