The City of Ivanhoe will have a new law enforcement officer serving as extra protection for its citizens this year. On January 10, council members introduced David C. Davis, the new Deputy that will be providing security to the city of Ivanhoe. Davis, former Constable for precinct 2, will now be the main source of protection for Ivanhoe residents.
Davis has lived in Tyler county since 1978 and has 29 years of law enforcement experience.
"I appreciate the opportunity to come down here and work with Ivanhoe," Davis said. "My job will be to do some follow-ups and be a contact person for the city. Often times the deputies that come in and work a call may be off for the next four days. If something needs to be followed up on, that will fall under what I will do. I will work with the city of Ivanhoe about 20 hours and week, and you still have the sheriffs department 24 hours a day, seven days a week. I look forward to meeting the folks of Ivanhoe and if there is something I can do to help, please let me know."
Ivanhoe, in the month of December alone, had 30 calls of service for alarms, assault, animal complaints, burglary, criminal mischief, disturbances, intoxicated persons and theft, so Davis's help in the city is sure to make a difference in the lives of many Ivanhoe residents.
