“When I began my law enforcement career in 1996, I set out to fulfill God’s call on my life to serve and be a positive example to others. I joined the Greensboro Police Department in 2002, because of the vast opportunities to truly serve the public," Davis said. "Through my years of service, it has given me immeasurable joy to provide everything from community service to crisis counseling. The scriptures describe that there is “no greater love than to lay down one’s life for a friend” (John 15:13). My police career has been an illustration of this timeless mandate.”
