Assistant Chief Tyrone Davis has been with the department for 25 years. He currently heads up the division that oversees the SWAT team and Bomb Squad.

Davis started as a police officer with the SPD when he first joined the department before working his way up to detective. He worked as a detective for five years before becoming a lieutenant with the SPD, and subsequently the assistant chief.
