Davis has been named as the 2007 Tennessee Wildlife Officer of the
Year. Davis received and was presented his award at the annual
Southeastern Association of Fish and Wildlife Association (SEAFWA)
Conference, held in Charleston, West Virginia.
SEAFWA is an organization whose members are the state agencies
with primary responsibility for management and protection of the
fish and wildlife resources in 16 states, Puerto Rico and the United
States Virgin Islands.
Davis, assigned to Bradley County, is an integral part of the Area
33 team in Southeastern Tennessee. His activities are directed to
all facets of a professional multi-purpose wildlife officer. Davis
understands the importance of educating and introducing the younger
generation to hunting and fishing and his attitude and teaching
ability keeps him involved in virtually all youth events in the
area. His approach to teamwork finds him assisting other Wildlife
Officers and Law Enforcement Agencies (local, state, and federal)
with their needs.
A self-motivated officer, Davis is always looking for new
opportunities to enhance wildlife in his county and new ways to
accomplish the Agency’s goals. All of his actions are accomplished
within the context of the Area 33 team.
Davis never misses an opportunity to make a friend for the Agency.
He assists stranded motorists and boaters at every opportunity. A
multi-purpose officer and career professional, his pleasant
demeanor, strong work ethic, attitude, and sense of fairness have
helped lead him to become among the top of the TWRA officers.
