A DeKalb County police officer resigned after admitting to having sex while on duty.
Former DeKalb officer Freddie Davis handed in his resignation letter in March after he was confronted about his relationship with a woman. Davis said he met a woman named Lakesa Page in September, and a sexual relationship ensued.
According to an internal affairs report, Page told Davis’ supervisors the two met several times, including a sexual encounter behind a Walmart store on Panola Road. She reported him after the relationship was over.
In a sworn statement, Page said, “While on duty, Freddie Davis would meet me in a park behind Walmart, or he would meet me in a parking lot behind the liquor store on Wesley Chapel [Road].”
DeKalb police records show Davis worked out of the county’s east precinct before he was confronted by investigators about when and how many times the two met. He had been with the county since 2008.
Davis admitted to having sex with Page but said she became angry after he stopped talking to her.
Page said another friend encountered Davis while he was on duty at a Quicktrip on Panola Road, and he approached her as well. She later found out he was married.
Along with losing his job, Davis’ post certification is also in jeopardy.
