DAVIS SHERIFF'S STATION "IMPAVIDUS BELLATOR" LOS SANTOS COUNTY SHERIFF'S DEPARTMENT THE HISTORY The Davis Police Department served the City of Davis and its unincorporated areas from 1906 up until the 14th of May, 1998. The Davis Police Department was disbanded by the Davis City Council as a result of the skyrocketing homicide rates that were left unattended paired with the significant controversies with local communities, multiple police brutality claims, and scandals involving the Department's executives. The premises of the old Davis Police Station was subsequently converted into a youth activities center in an attempt to combat the elevated homicide count conducted by minors. This center was in use prior to it shutting down in early 2000 due to the lack of funding for the program. Shortly thereafter on the 17th of September, 2000, the Davis City Council contracted with the Los Santos County Sheriff's Department to become the main municipal law enforcement agency for the City of Davis. The whopping 22 million dollars per annum paid by the City of Davis to the LS County Sheriff's is utilized in providing a variety of specialized teams and highly trained patrol deputies to serve Davis and its unincorporated areas. A year later after the opening in 2000, station command within the Davis Sheriff's Station adopted "impavidus bellator" to be the stations motto. When translated from Latin it is "the fearless warrior" which pays homage to the deputies working at the station and the willpower they have to overcome any task, no matter the difficulty. CONTROVERSIES Throughout the existence of the Davis Sheriff's Station, a multitude of controversies sprouted under the tenure of Sheriff Joseph Cline and Captain Damian Suarez. A variety of brutality, fraud, and deputy gang scandals tarnished the name of the sheriff's station, resulting in demonstrations occurring right outside the facility. One of which being the Davis City Council accusing the Department's executives of conning the City of Davis for contract hours, fabricating statistics about said hours being fulfilled. As a result of the riots on the 30th of July, 2022, a deputy at the Davis Sheriff's Station stepped forward to speak out about the alleged brutality claims found at the patrol station on the aforementioned date. Deputy Sarah Ostrowski went on a local news network, whistleblowing the fact that the station was institutionally corrupt, and permeated by violent deputy gangs. What stands out from this complaint is that it was all done by a deputy who worked at the station for over half a decade. AREAS SERVED The Davis Sheriff's Station proudly serves the City of Davis, Strawberry, Chamberlain Hills, Rancho, Palomino Highlands, Cypress Flats, and the unincorporated area of La Puerta. MY GOALS ARE SIMPLE I WILL ALWAYS BE PAINFULLY HONEST WORK AS HARD AS I CAN LEARN AS MUCH AS I CAN AND HOPEFULLY MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN PEOPLE'S LIVES. - Deputy David W. March, EOW 04/22/02
