Assistant Chief Davis named new Darlington Police Chief
With the impending retirement of Police Chief Kelvin Washington, Darlington City Manager John Payne has promoted Assistant Chief Jimmy Davis to Chief of Police.
According to Payne, “Assistant Chief Davis, a lifelong Darlingtonian, has ably served its people for over 30 years. From patrol to training to investigations, he has worked across the
department and has risen from within the ranks. He understands current departmental policy and procedures and has the respect of his officers. His professional experience, and knowledge of
the community, will be invaluable as he moves the department forward.”
Assistant Chief Davis is excited to assume the helm of the police department. Davis said, “I have dedicated my professional career to protecting the citizens of Darlington and am looking forward to
leading the department. It is a great opportunity and I promise to continue to show up each day with the intention of making Darlington a better place to live, work and raise a family.”
