Officer Walter Davis


Fallen HeroOfficer Walter Davis


On this day in Baltimore Police History 1954, we lost our brother, Police Officer Walter Davis, to a line-of-duty auto accident based on the following:

On October 16, 1952, Walter Davis’ dream of becoming a police officer came true. He entered the academy, passed all of the required classes, and graduated. Upon graduation, he was assigned to the Northeast District. He was an aggressive officer, showed up for work on time, handled his calls, and had sector and post integrity. On July 1, 1954, one year and nine months after his hire, while working car number 431  in the 4400 block of Harford Road, it was ten minutes after a call had come out that all the lights were out on all the safety pylons between the Harford Road car barn and Cold Spring Lane. Officer Walter Davis was killed when his departmental vehicle crashed into one of those pylons.

He will forever be missed, but never will he be forgotten by us, his brothers and sisters of the Baltimore Police Department. God bless you and Rest in Peace
