Corporal Christopher Adams moved to Odessa when he was just four years old. He graduated from Odessa High School and says what really stands out about our city is that people are kind!
Christopher is following in his grandfather’s footsteps who was also a police officer. He’s been with OPD for four years and is on our Bomb Squad. He also has a military background and is currently serving in the Air Force Reserve. He’s been doing that for the past five years. Before that, he served in the Marines for six years.
He has a unique background because he’s half African American/half Caucasian. He says he embraces both sides and sees things in a different lense because of that.
As far as the African American Culture, he says he loves the food, resiliency, and creativity.
He’s been married for 11 years and has three young kids.
Christopher has a Dalmatian named “Todd Benson Adams.” Not a typical doggie name, but he laughed that his kids came up with the name.
