Ofc. David Taylor
Prior to being emloyeed at Garner P.D. I was an automotive tech. for the N.C. State Highway Patrol for 13 yrs. While there I worked on the Harley Davidson and BMW patrol motorcycles as well as automoblies.
At Garner P.D. I started out as a patrol officer and worked that assignment until I became a traffic safety officer on the first traffic safety unit the department started. I became one of the first motor officer's in the depatrment's history after I attended a police motor school at the N.C. Highway Patrol training center in 2007. After completing 6 1/2 years on the traffic unit a K-9 position came open and I applied for that position. I was asigned to the K-9 unit and worked my K-9 for the next 8 yrs. After my K-9 retired, I applied for a position back on the traffic safety unit. I am currently holding that position. I attended a Bike Safe program in Greensboro, N.C., November 30 through December 2 of 2016.
