At the June Liberty County Sheriff’s Office meeting, Chief Deputy Don Neyland announced that Amber Davila of the Bond and Fine Division had been selected as the Employee of the Month.
Neyland pointed out the outstanding qualities of Davila and stressed that with her overloaded responsibilities she is one of those employees that will still go that extra mile to accomplish her job assignments in the most professional manner possible.
“With her somewhat laid back and very calm approach to handling funds for bonds and fines, there is never a doubt that all records and finances will reach the highest standards possible,” a statement from the sheriff’s office reads.
Davila says she chose her career after seeing the close bond her husband, Joel, a sergeant with another agency, has with fellow law enforcement officers.
“It was this positive feeling that motivated her to join law enforcement to also be a part of that same family,” the statement continues.
After spending four years with the Dayton Police Department as a communications supervisor, Davila decided to move on to the sheriff’s office where she has now worked for the last five years. When she first started as a volunteer with the sheriff’s office, many hours were spend helping to inventory property, sort through and file records and an assortment of other duties within the agency.
Married and with eight children ranging from 21 to 11 years of age does not leave a great deal of time for other activities but fishing and reading are hobbies she enjoys.
However, her real love is her young grandson. Davila says her main focus in life is her faith, family and work family.
Davila hopes to stay with the sheriff’s office until she can retire.
