Transcript I New police chief devoted professional life to UH Story by Mark Smith Davis is convinced that his long association with UH - his vast experience with administrators and students - will serve him as the university's leading peacemaker. alcolm Davis has watched the landscape of campus change, and faces come and go. He has rooted the Cougars on from the sidelines at Robertson Stadium and fought administrative battles in conference rooms. As a student at UH in the mid- 1970's, Davis marched at fottball games as a tuba player in the university's band. A music major, Davis found his calling in public safety. Working his way through school as a security guard at Astroworld, he translated that experience into patrol work in greater Houston. He was away from campus a total of six years. After several job offers, including opportunities in the music world, he returned to UH as a member of the UH Police Department in the early-1980s. His dedication to the police force, and the campus, earned him the position of campus Police Chief in May of 2005. Davis's promotion came on the heels of veteran Police Chief Bob Wilson's retirement. The search for a replacement occupied much of 2005. Davis is convinced that his long association with UH - his vast experience with administrators and students - will serve him as the university's leading peacemaker. He also boasts an extensive knowledge of the campus map and crime tendencies over the past twenty years. His early objectives as Police Chief include increasing the ranks of bicycle patrol officers and developing the UH's Rape Aggression Defense program - a 12-hour self-defense class for women. Davis introduced himself to students, faculty and staff extensively during his first month in office. He has been interviewed in a number of venues and has published open letters to students introducing new Department of Public Safety programs and outlining his initiatives. Among the major projects already underway before Davis's transition into office was the installment of a security camera system on campus. Beginning in the fall semester 2005, DPS will monitor large portions of UH from an advanced control center in the Police Department. Davis has assumed responsibility for promoting the system and responding to student opinion. His hopes are that students will quickly come to understand the parameters of the security eye — which includes parking lots and select regions in the building cluster — and accept the advantages of video surveillance. Davis's experience on campus includes recent work as a student. In 1999 he earned a master's degree in occupational technology. Working long hours for DPS, the degree came slowly. He took classes and walked the campus with many current UH students. After thirty years at UH, he has shared the perspective of students and staff several times over. He hopes this experience will prove an asset in his new job. 92
