VIDEO: Family of Fallen Phoenix Officer Donates Father's Pistol to Agency Museum

A special memorial was held Thursday to remember and honor the sacrifice of 38 Phoenix Police officers who died in the line of duty, and their families.

It's a day that hits close to home for Photojournalist Rick Davis, who was 22 when his father was killed in the line of duty. "When my father was shot in a bank robbery in 1982, I was a sophomore in college," Rick Davis told KSAZ TV.

"This was his service gun, small and special; this is what he carried on him," said Davis, as he handled the custom made .357 snub nose that his family just donated to the Phoenix Police Museum.

Det Davis was shot and killed along with Det Conchos, they were the first Phx. Officers killed after I joined the department and I had worked around Det Conchos. This was a devastating loss to us. The Davis family have been and always were a fine upstanding family and a credit to our community. As I progressed thru the ranks and the Department I worked around Rick Davis in my capacity as a Detective and he as a video journalist. he was always professional and courteous, a fine man in his own right. Thanks once again to the Davis family.
