Dangerous jobs in Anderson


In Anderson, Indiana there are so many jobs that are dangerous. For example, being a police officer is a seriously risky job. They put themselves in harm’s way to protect and serve the community. They deal with all sorts of dangerous situations like high-speed chases, armed suspects, and even violent confrontations. 

Student Resource Officer Jerry Simmons said, “My job is dangerous and I don’t know if I will go home that night because i don’t know what’s going to happen to me to when I pull a car over or when I go knock on someone’s door.’’  

It takes a lot of bravery and dedication to be a police officer. They have to deal with people that won’t act right or like to run or hide. Being a police officer is probably the most dangerous job because they could pull someone over or go to someone’s house and not know what is going to happen and get shot.

Officer Simmons said he loves to pull people over and he loves to help people on the side of the road. Officer Simmons loves his job as a police officer.

There are also other jobs where people are risking their lives. Anderson man Casey Redman works at Wright of Indiana. Redman has to stand on the road and direct traffic and try to not get hit because of all the crazy drivers on the road.

Redman has been hurt on the job before. Someone ran him over because they were not paying attention to the stop sign he was holding up. “People need to pay more attention to what they are doing,” he said.

Despite the danger, Redman says, “I love my job. I plan on staying at my job as long as I can until they let me go and my job is stressful because people don’t want to work’’.
