New Chief to Use Reform Experience to Build Upon FCPD Accomplishments

This morning Chief Kevin Davis held his first press conference at our Public Safety Headquarters highlighting his first week in Fairfax County. During the busy week, he met with local government officials, Department senior leadership and officers at the Mount Vernon District Station. He discussed his family legacy in policing which led him to become a fourth-generation public servant. The values he learned in his early years inspired him to a life of service to the community.

Chief Davis looks forward to continuing his service here in Fairfax County as he develops a 100-day plan to initiate reform efforts and build relationships within the community. His experience in reforming major city police departments and his relationship with the Civil Rights Division of the Department of Justice puts Fairfax County in a position to be at the forefront of modern-day police reform initiatives. Chief Davis will collaborate with community members and officers to enhance community policing and co-responder models. Chief Davis will also focus on recruitment and retention, equity and inclusion, procedural justice and community-oriented policing.

Knowing he cannot sit on the sidelines during this pivotal time for policing in our country, Chief Davis is excited and ready to lead the Fairfax County Police Department as it builds upon our strong reputation.
