Mr.  Christopher Davis

About Chris Davis – Criminal Justice and Homeland Security
I am retired from the U.S. Air Force where I worked for the Security Police.  I worked for a local police department for over 17 years and was the Support Services Manager, responsible for  Police Records, Accreditation, Animal Control, 911 Center,  Victim Services, and Crime Analysis. 
I have a B.S. in Criminal Justice from the University of Maryland and a M.S. in Criminal Justice from Eastern Kentucky University.  While in the military I received the USAF Meritorious Service Medal with two bronze stars, the USAF Commendation Medal with two bronze stars, and the USAF Achievement Medal.  I was also selected as the Town of Cary Employee of the Year in 1999.
I have a couple of quotes that inspire me, depending on the situation.  I have a book by the Dalai Lama called Daily Advice from the Heart that I read and for teaching I use this; “I am convinced that the progress or decline of humanity rests very largely with educators and teachers, who therefor have a tremendous responsibility.”
The other quote comes from the book Tuesdays with Morrie; “So many people walk around with a meaningless life.  They seem half-asleep, even when they’re busy doings things they think are important.  This is because they’re chasing the wrong things.  The way you get meaning into your life is to devote yourself to loving others, devote yourself to your community around you, and devote yourself to creating something that gives you purpose and meaning.”
I am also a huge sports fan and will watch anything sports related.  I have been married for 35 years and have one son.  Yes…my wife is a sports widow.
