35 Cops Finish The Tree House A Slain Officer Was Building For His Daughter
August 1, 2017
To honor a fallen police officer, 35 cops and state troopers got together to finish construction of a very special project.
Retired and active officers from the New York State Police, Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office, and the Watertown City Police joined together to finish building the tree house that Officer Joel Davis had been building for his youngest daughter, Jaila.
Officer Davis, 36, was shot when he responded to a domestic violence call and never got to finish the project.
In less than a day, the officers put the finishing touches on Jaila’s fort, completing features like a ladder, windows, a string of lights, and a balcony.
Thanks to his fellow boys in blue, Davis’ daughter will always have the memory of undying friendship and love to warm her life in the coming years.
