Davis plans on beginning the application process immediately for a new full-time officer to fill the vacancy in the department.  “I am excited at this opportunity to serve this community at a higher expectation and look forward to working with everyone.” Davis closed.

Davis will take over as Fayette Police Chief on May 12th.
