My name is John Davis; currently I am the Deputy Chief of Police for the Lamar Police Department. I have worked with the Lamar Police Department since 1986. I started my career as a Police Explorer with the Springfield Missouri Police Department in 1978. I served as a Military Police Officer for 3 years before starting my career as a civilian police officer. I have held at one time or another every position there is in our police department from patrol officer to head of agency. I have always enjoyed working with the youth in our community to help them achieve their goals in life. My favorite program in the police department is our annual Shop with a Cop where we take children from the community Christmas shopping in order to better relations between the officers and the youth of the community.
