Officer 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 16 October 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, has sector and post integrity. On 1 July, 1954 one year, and nine months after his hire while working car number #431 and 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 and Rest in Peace

Baltimore Police Historical Society

Baltimore Police Historical Society put the articles found on this site together using research from old newspapers, old books, old photographs, and old artifacts. We rely more heavily on information written at, or near the time of the incidents or events that we are researching. We do not put too much weight on the more recently written historic information, or information that has been written with a biased opinion, or agenda. We will not tell our readers what to think about our past, as much as we will tell a story as it was written with the hopes of our readers will form their own opinions. We tell a story about what happened, and not why it happened. That said, ever so often we might come across a story that to us is so exciting we might express an enthusiasm in our writings. We hope the reader will still form an opinion of their own based on the information written at the time, and not information more recently written that has a so-called "filtered past" or that has been twisted and pulled in the direction of a storyteller's personal feelings or agenda. Please enjoy the site and feel free to write us should you have any questions or information.
