David from season 5 of 60 Days In


Season 5

From hustling the streets to patrolling them, David is not your average police officer. David plans to use his investigative skills, along with his street savvy, to help the Sheriff learn how drugs are getting in and out of the facility.

David had a rough start to life. His parents, who came to the U.S. from the slums of Jamaica, were unfit to raise him. His mother left him in the care of his grandmother when he was just three because of her dangerous lifestyle. His father, a drug dealer, served time in federal prison. David grew up in a high-crime area of a midwestern city and spent a good portion of his time in the streets.

Knowing he could easily go down the wrong path, David surprised himself and joined law enforcement. He quickly learned the positive impact he could have on his struggling community through the job. His past involvement in the streets gives him an edge in navigating situations other officers shy away from, and he considers himself one of the toughest men ever to wear the uniform. David is clear-eyed about the problems plaguing law enforcement, and wants to change the system from the inside out.

The Sheriff has tasked David with the mission of evaluating the drug scene inside the jail. David is confident that he can fly under the radar, make strong connections and complete his undercover mission to make the jail a safer place for officers and inmates alike, which aligns with his personal goals and the oath he took as an officer.
