Moss Point Police Chief, Keith Davis', decision to resign from his position, has been met with a very vocal community that wants him to stay. At the Board of Aldermen meeting Tuesday night, the board unanimously voted to reject the letter of resignation, while a room full of outspoken residents say the city should do all it can to keep him on board.

Thursday, Chief Davis spoke to News 25, saying he is overwhelmed by the community's support for him, making his decision to leave a very tough one. We asked the Chief if there was any chance he would remain on the job. He had this to say: “For my love of the City of Moss Point, I am certainly not opposed to having a sit down meeting with the Board of Aldermen and the community to discuss my decision and if I am not at liberty to stay based on the Mayor’s office, I would like for them to know firsthand from me why. I heard one of the aldermen discuss that they would want the ability to know what they can do better in the future to keep and retain police chiefs, so I would like to be able to share that with them.”

The Chief's last day is set for June 27th.
