Montgomery Police Department 1st Shift Motors had the honor of escorting Officer Davis today on the beginning portion of his final trip to Birmingham. Officer Davis died in the line of duty doing the exact same thing I do everyday, promoting traffic safety through enforcement and deterrence. His death hits very close to my heart as a Traffic Officer and saddens me very deeply. I hope all of my Law Enforcement family with the Pelham Police Department will be able to unite and heal from this tragedy over time and that his wife and children will be supported and looked after. I still get upset when I drive around Montgomery in the areas where we have lost Officers, but I just try and remember to focus on the good times we had and the laughs we shared....I still miss them all as I know Officer Davis will be. Thank You Officer Phillip Davis for having the courage and willingness each day to hold that "Thin Blue Line" for our freedom and protection.

It is with deep sadness and sympathy that I write to offer my condolences, and final salute to Officer Phillip Davis. My appreciation for the unselfish job you did as one of Gods Chosen Servants. I know right now that God is extending to you "Well Done My Good and Faithful Servant"! May God comfort your sons, and wife during this loss. Rest in peace my brother. I know you served your community and God well.

Isaiah 57
1 Good people pass away;
the godly often die before their time.
But no one seems to care or wonder why.
No one seems to understand
that God is protecting them from the evil to come.
2 For those who follow godly paths
will rest in peace when they die.

I shared many end of shift breakfast's with Phillip when he worked with Calera PD. I know of very few people with a wit as quick as Phillip's, and I sincerely enjoyed those times when we would cross paths on shift. You will be missed brother, but we will carry on the fight with you in our hearts. You and your family are in my prayers.

This hits very close to home. What a tragedy it is to lose one of our neighboring brothers at a time like this. May the good Lord bless Officer Davis's soul and hold him in his arms while he still watches over us from above. May the good Lord bless Mrs. Davis and her children and that he may give them the strength to pull through this sad and terrible moment. May the good Lord also bless the Pelham Police Dept. and give them the strength to cope with the lost of one of their own and our brother in blue. You may be gone Officer Davis but you will never be forgotten. GOD SPEED!!!

For Police Officer Phillip Davis:

A law officer on patrol has to deal with many hazards. Traffic stops are chief among the many that exist. When we stop a vehicle no one knows what awaits. The usual is an encounter that is routine, and the unusual is one that leads to an officer's death. Both are existing factors that present themselves to every law officer performing this duty. All of us who patrol face what has happened before and is sure to happen again.

For Phil, the worst situation presented itself for reasons known only to our creator. Little is available to protect us from cowards who attack suddenly and without warning. We don't approach the general public looking down the sights of our weapons. We are peace officers, not warriors. Such is our lot.

We pray for Phil, his family, his friends, his co-workers and all who care about him. We pray for their recovery and their cherishing of all that a family member, a friend, or a partner could mean to them. May they recall only the best moments and the truest reasons they find him worthy of honor. For he has earned it, since forfeiting his life for others deems him nothing less than a hero.

As a fellow law officer I am proud to render him a final salute.
