Sources: Bristol Borough Detective Top Candidate for Tullytown Chief of Police Slot



Three law enforcement related sources told Lower Bucks Source, Bristol Borough Detective William “Billy” Davis is seriously being considered for the Tullytown Borough Chief of Police position.

The three sources said Davis has until Friday (today) to decide on whether or not he will take the position.

Davis a veteran cop has been with the Borough Police department for about 25  years and was promoted to the Detectives role, shortly after Sgt Randy Morris retired in 2016.

Tullytown officials were quick to respond Tuesday morning mostly pushing back on the reports

We haven’t interviewed anyone for the position, said Council President Mary Ann Gahagan.

What you have done is cause a controversy where there is none she said,. Alluding to communications she received in response to this publication’s inquiries about Davis potentially being offered the Chief of Police position.

Gahagan did say there are seven or eight candidates Tullytown is considering, but no one has been interviewed or offered the job,

The hiring committee, led by Council vice president Bryan Servis is overseeing that process, so I think your sources are wrong, she said.

When told  Mayor J. David Cutchineal confirmed Davis was a candidate,  Gahagan said that could be true, but this was the first she’s heard his name connected to the Chief of Police position vacated by the retirement of beloved former Chief Daniel Doyle last month.

Cutchineal who doesn’t have a vote when it comes to hiring’s, did offer his opinion on who he would like to see appointed to lead the department serving a little more than 2200 residents.

“The majority council have indeed kept it close to the vest. I have heard Billy Davis’ name and a few others as well. I don’t know Detective Davis personally but I’m sure he would do a good job as would a few others whose names have been discussed.”
“My personal preference would have been Sgt Andrew Bunda but I’m not sure he is any longer interested,” the Mayor added.
I think it’s going to take us about six months to go through the interview and committee process before a chief of police candidate is decided upon, said Gahagan.
She did say she doubted the publications sources were Tullytown officials “because nothing has been decided by the borough.”
Attempts to reach Davis and Servis were unsuccessful.
