Duty Officer Michael Davis
Troop C (Tampa)
Congratulations to Duty Officer Michael Davis for being selected as the Florida Highway Patrol Duty Officer of the Quarter, July through September 2012.
On Aug. 8, Davis received a call from a worried mother trying to locate her adult daughter from out of state. Without hesitation, Davis created a service call and sent out a message to all law enforcement agencies to do welfare check should they make contact with the daughter.
Davis continued to search for the rental vehicle, the name of the person who rented the vehicle. He also worked with Verizon to “ping” or find her last location. After three hours, Davis located the daughter and the man she was with.
Davis worked with the Tampa Police Department, which contacted the daughter.
His work ethic, professional knowledge, dedication and perseverance make Davis a true asset to the Tampa Regional Communications Center. The Department congratulates him for earning the honor of Florida Highway Patrol Duty Officer of the Quarter for July through September 2012.
