We know who took the best assignments this week- these guys! Savannah Police officers are always visiting schools and daycare centers to read to children and teach them about safety! Let us know if you’d like an officer to come read to your class! 📚#savannahpolice#books#bookworm
Lord, under the category of headlines that make my life better I would file this gem. Apparently someone is defacing confederate statutes in Georgia and the police are Not. Here. For. It. They say it’s no laughing matter which is so funny. Cause you know...irony. Is this an episode of Parks & Rec? Did Greg Pikitis strike again? So funny. #prayerpause
I had an opportunity to photograph some of the training that the K-9 unit for Savannah PD does yesterday. The department is also trying to win a contest to win a new police vehicle that is built for K-9s

🇺🇸 Today, @craigmanne and I represented the Sandy Springs Police Department at Officer Anthony Christie’s Celebration of Life in Savannah, Georgia. Officer Christie was a City of Savannah Police Officer, and his tour tragically ended the morning of Friday, May 25th, 2018 on I-16. 💙
This is Police Officer Anthony Christie who was killed when his patrol car was struck by a tractor-trailer. He was assisting at the scene of the collision and was seated in his patrol car when it was struck by the tractor-trailer.
Officer Christie had served with the Savannah Police Department for two years. He is survived by his wife.

On May 25th, Savannah (Georgia) Police Officer Anthony Christie responded to an early morning auto accident on Interstate 16 to assist in traffic control. Officer Christie had parked his vehicle with the overhead lights activated to divert traffic onto another roadway when a tractor trailer struck the side of this patrol car. Anthony was transported to the hospital but passed away from his injuries. He was a husband and 2 year veteran of the Savannah Police Department. Anthony was also a decorated 13 year veteran of the U.S. Navy. In 2016, Officer Christie received a commendation for the recovery of a missing child that was abandoned in the woods by a robbery suspect. He was 37 years old. #savannah#georgia#savannahpolice#policeofficer#anthonychristie#usnavy#veteran
