American law-enforcement officer and administrator, who served as the chief of the Los Angeles Police Department from 1969 to 1978. He was a Los Angeles cop-on-the-beat in 1940 before serving three years in the U.S. Navy, then getting a UCLA degree in public administration. He moonlighted as a college teacher for 18 years while rising in the police force to become the controversial boss of the nation's third largest law enforcement body. He retired in 1978.

Davis moved into the California State Senate but was unsuccessful in his 1986 primary bid for reelection, ending up with a debt of $105,000 for the campaign.

Ed Davis died from pneumonia on 22 April 2006 in San Luis Obispo, California. He was 89.
