His promotion to sergeant came in 1999. His next promotion to lieutenant proceeded in 2006. His promotion to captain occurred in 2011. Davis was chosen by El Cajon City Manager Doug Williford to take over as chief. His starting salary will be $169,790

If you find yourself or someone close to you being arrested by someone like Chief Jeff Davis or some of the policemen that he oversees, you would need to find a bail bondsman. You must then fill out the bail bond agreement. The next step would involve placing your signature on the agreement. You would then make a payment of the cost to the bail bondsman. The bail agent would then escort you to the jail to post the bond. The defendant would then get out of jail. The defendant would have to sign the bail bond agreement and then return home. The bail money will then be returned to the depositor after the judgment of the court, unless directed by the judge to do otherwise.

Davis has served in many capacities on the El Cajon police force. He served as the overseer for the safety programs of 23 traffic schools in the Traffic Division. He has also served, as a training officer supervisor for police recruits at the Regional Police Academy in San Diego. He was also a manager of El Cajon’s Crime Analysis Division and the crime lab.

Retired Chief of Police Jim Redman says that Davis is an excellent choice. He has been an outstanding captain and he is extremely well qualified.

Jeff Davis is the third successive police chief to graduate from El Capitan High. Chief Redman and his antecedent, Pat Sprecco both graduated from Lakeside High School. Davis attended San Diego Christian College and received a bachelor’s degree in business management. He is presently studying homeland security and global studies in a pursuit of a master’s degree.

Davis responded as a SWAT team member to a deadly shooting at a high school in Santee that left five people wounded at an El Cajon high school. El Cajon’s city manager says that from his time on the city’s SWAT Team to his leadership role in El Cajon’s diverse cultural community, Davis has exhibited all of the characteristics that will make him successful as the city’s next police chief. He says that Jeff has developed the support of his officers, city staff, the City Council and the community at large. He further says that this will be a seamless transition.

He has also matched the completion of a Department of Justice grant to help stop street level drug dealers in El Cajon. He has worked diligently in the Crimes against Children Unit.
