    On behalf of the Old Dominion University Police Department, I extend our most sincere condolences to Pam, Danielle, and the entire Davis family. As we at the ODU Police Department mourn the passing of this highly dedicated public servant, we pledge to remember his family during this unimaginable time. We also pledge to emulate the selfless passion and pride Kevin exemplified as we continue to watch over our community.

    Kevin was undoubtedly a gentle giant that always met you with a handshake, cheerful smile, and warm greeting. His high degree of work ethic was noticed and complemented on by many in the department and ODU community. On Friday, March 29th, I had the pleasure of seeing Kevin when he reported to police headquarters at the start of his shift. As he usually did, he greeted me with his signature handshake, smile, laugh, and kind words. I have had the occasion to work with many dedicated public safety professionals throughout my 37-year law enforcement career. Kevin was one of those professionals that truly made a mark as a man who was dedicated to the safety and security of the community at the highest standards. It was truly a gift to see that friendly smile one last time. You were truly one of a kind, you will be missed, but you will never be forgotten.

    God speed my friend; we will take it from here.
