OPSO Mourns the Passing of Capt Robert Davis

Captain Robert Davis passed away December 9, 2012.

Robert Davis began his career with the Ouachita Parish Sheriff’s Office under Sheriff Bailey Grant in October of 1972. Davis’s 40 year career spanned six different sheriff’s terms. In June 1980 he graduated from the 122nd session of the FBI National Academy in Quantico, Virginia. In September of 1980 Davis was promoted to the rank of Sergeant. In July of 1984 Davis was promoted to Lieutenant and then to Captain in May of 1998.

Captain Davis retired in February of 2002 but continued to serve the citizens of Ouachita Parish by working part-time for the Ouachita Parish Sheriff’s Office. In his 40 years of service, Captain Davis received numerous letters of commendation from both citizens and fellow deputies.

All of us at OPSO are feeling the void of not having our friend and mentor here every day as we have for the last 40 years. Our thoughts and prayers are extended to the Davis family.
