Officer Deborah Strawn

Decatur’s Thomas O. Davis Award honors a public employee who has helped strengthen the bond between government and the community, served as a role model for others in public service, contributed to the well-being of the community, inspired others to get involved in public service, and served the public with respect. The award is named for Decatur’s long-time city attorney.

Officer Strawn, who has worked with the City of Decatur Police Department for 25 years, was honored for her service and commitment to her job and the community. Strawn supervises the School Crossing Guards, is in charge of the Evidence Room, and works most of our special events. It is a pleasure to work with someone as dedicated as Deborah Strawn.

The DBA presents the Thomas O. Davis Public Servant Award every year to a Decatur public servant who exemplifies the finest qualities of citizenship. This award was established in 2001 in memory of Thomas O. Davis, Decatur’s city attorney from 1968 until his death in 2000.

The DBA meeting was held at Eddie’s Attic. Mr. Fisher, after receiving the award, joked that he has always wanted to play on stage at Eddie’s, and he walked behind the piano and played a few bars. “Now I can tell my friends I have played at Eddie’s!” he remarked.
