About the Guest

Robert  Davis is a former police officer with the New Orleans Police Department.  At the age of 22 he joined the New Orleans Police Department; after two years on the job he was arrested for police related corruption and facing 30 years in prison.  Rather than face the charges he fled, becoming a fugitive for over 20 years.   Robert Davis’ book, Cop Out, “is a true account of how a former police officer survived as a fugitive while evading authorities and eventually surrendered to God. This narrative approach of survival and skill encompasses a diversity of stories and experiences, including life in wooded terrain and survival as a fugitive for over twenty years. This account serves as a means for the readers to envision challenges as a true survivor leading to surrender regardless of the outcome. Reflections are provided to aid readers’ understanding of this lengthy journey from periods of atheism to acceptance of God.” 

About the Watering Hole

The Watering Hole is police slang for a location cops go off-duty to blow off steam and talk about work and life.  Sometimes funny; sometimes serious; but, always interesting.
