With the impending retirement of Darlington 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 with 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. “I have dedicated my professional career to protecting the citizens of Darlington and am looking forward to leading the department,” Davis said, “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.”
