Fort Collins Police Services is proud to announce that Victim Witness Specialist Britta Davis has been honored with regional and international awards for her work.
The International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) recently selected Davis for its 40 Under 40 award. Recipients “represent the top rising leaders from around the globe, exemplifying leadership, dedication, and service to their communities and the law enforcement profession.” This prestigious honor is awarded to sworn and non-sworn employees from local, state, and federal agencies, and in 2021 included recipients from Australia, Canada, India, Korea, the United Arab Emirates, and the United States.
In Larimer County, the Sexual Assault Victim Advocate (SAVA) Center recently awarded Davis the Spirit of Advocacy award for her exceptional efforts to serve sexual assault victims.
Davis joined FCPS in 2008 and works closely with community members and families impacted by crime. She is certified in Forensic Experiential Trauma Interviews (FETI) and has developed local and state training about the Colorado Victim Rights Amendment, neurobiology of trauma, victimology and effective ways to communicate with trauma victims, cumulative career traumatic stress, sexual assault and domestic violence investigations. She also serves on the Colorado Organization for Victim Assistance (COVA) board and 3Hopeful Hearts executive board, as a Colorado P.O.S.T. Law Enforcement Academy instructor, and as an FCPS Peer Support Team member.
“Britta has dedicated her entire career to walking with people through their darkest moments. Her passion for victims extends beyond the initial incident; she supports them in the months and even years that follow,” said FCPS Jeff Swoboda. “Too often, our society focuses heavily on criminals and forgets about the people impacted. I’m incredibly proud of the tireless work Britta has done to educate within our profession and support victim-focused service in our community.”
