“First and foremost I want to thank you for your support of Ohio law enforcement officers.

With that said I am truly blessed and humbled with the overwhelming support and prayers I have received. In a day in age where you question the decision to wear a badge. Just seeing how many good hearted people there are reconfirms the love and passion I have for my job. It is very easy to pay attention to the negative media post and get caught up in that drama.
Update on me,
I am still at Grant Hospital and I will hopefully be going home soon. The blood/fluid build up in my abdomen has not changed in the MRI scans I’ve had in the past 24 hours. I will have to speak to a surgeon about my right hip due to deminished blood flow. I am very sore and beaten up but I’m upright and walking. The safety equipment in my vehicle did its job to perfection and spared me from further harm or worst.
Again I am extremely greatful for this pages support along with the support and prayers of everyone.
Sgt Brenton Davidson
