P.O. Aaron Davis III
Officer of the Month – March 2014
On September 11, 2010, P.O. Aaron Davis and his partner, P.O. Tiawansa Davis, were dispatched to a disturbance call in the 003rd District.
The officers arrived on scene at 75th and Southshore, located the offender and ordered him to leave the area. The offender became combative, pulled a gun on the officers and shot P.O. Davis once in the chest. Thankfully, that round was deflected by the officer’s safety vest. Officer Davis immediately tried to gain some distance between himself and the offender and was shot a second time. That round penetrated his shoulder. The offender fled on foot as the officer’s partner returned fire. He was apprehended the next day by members of the Gang Enforcement Unit.
P.O. Aaron Davis III began his career with the CPD in 2000 and was assigned to the 004th District. He soon moved to the 003rd District where he worked until 2010. Officer Davis is currently assigned to Deployment Operations.
