Acts of Kindness: Marshal Red Davis

Posted: Updated:

HENDERSON, Nev. - Marshal Red Davis demands the utmost respect from the 100 teens inside Judge Diana Hampton's courtroom. The teens were either ordered to attend or came voluntarily with their parents.

They are taking part in the City of Henderson's Life of Crime program, which is designed to enlighten the teens of the pitfalls associated with crime.

"This program teaches the difference between a mistake and a decision," Judge Hampton said. "We concentrate on the fact anybody can make a mistake. What they are doing here is making decisions, as small as they may be, that can change their lives forever."

Five years ago, Judge Hampton offered Davis the opportunity to lead this three-hour seminar. He's been facilitating it ever since.

"I'm doing my best to give back to the community that's been so good to me," he said.

He considers it a labor of love. He does it strictly as a volunteer. The program is aimed at anybody between the ages of 7 and 24. Judge Hampton says Davis' role as a mentor extends beyond the program.

"When he's finished with the program, he's there for parents, the kids and the community in general," she said.

"I offer my services as a mentor, out of uniform, not related to job responsibilities, and I mentor families," Davis said. "I mentor them in a one-on-one setting, versus the one hundred-person setting of the program."

8 News NOW is rewarding Marshal Red Davis' efforts, awarding him $800 as part of its weekly series Acts of Kindness.
