ASU Names New Chief of Police

Alabama State University has a new police chief.  ASU appointed Henry Davis to the position.  Davis is no stranger to fighting crime in the capital city. He recently retired from the Montgomery Police Department after 24 years of service.

Davis, a native of Birmingham, said he is excited about his new role at ASU.

"What attracted me the most about taking on the challenge of serving as ASU's police chief is that I noticed how hard President Harris and the Board of Trustees are working to make Alabama State an even better place to obtain a quality education," Davis said, "so naturally I wanted to be a part of their winning team."

"Personally, I want to work with our police force at ASU as it grows professionally, so we can make sure that Alabama State continues as a safe and secure place to go to school," Davis said Tuesday.

When Davis is not taking care of bad guys, he is serving as the pastor of the Word of Life Tabernacle, a non-denominational church, which is located in Montgomery.

"My two passions in life are protecting people here on Earth and serving God through the ministry, which offers people peace and protection in the eternal life to come," Davis said.
