“It is with tremendous sadness and a heavy heart” that Stoughton Police Chief Donna McNamara announced the sudden death of Officer Christopher A. Davis. After 17 years of service with the Stoughton Police Department, Davis, 42, of Brockton, died suddenly in his home on Dec. 31, 2022.
Davis, an active member of Stoughton Police Department’s (SPD) Special Operations Unit and recipient of the Distinguished Service Award in 2012, was found unresponsive in his home Saturday night.
“Officer Davis’s kindness, bravery, dedication and devotion to his family, friends, the men and women of the Stoughton Police Department and the Stoughton community will be greatly missed,” McNamara said in an announcement on Jan. 1.
Davis served as SPD’s defensive tactics instructor. Since 2011, he investigated fire-related incidents for the department as a certified arson investigator. “He has been a dedicated member of the Stoughton Police Special Operations Unit, representing the Department with the utmost professionalism throughout the region,” McNamara said.
He was transported to Good Samaritan hospital in Brockton at roughly 9:45 p.m. Saturday, where he was later pronounced dead. Davis is survived by his fiancé, daughter, mother, brother, niece and grandchildren. (SOURCE)
