Jim Davis of Westminster is the newest appointee to the Colorado Lottery Commission. His appointment fulfills the requirement that at least one member of the Commission has served as a law enforcement officer for five years or more.

Davis served as a member of Governor John Hickenlooper’s cabinet as Executive Director of the Colorado Department of Public Safety (CDPS) and as Homeland Security Advisor. Heading a department of more than 1,600 employees, he supervised the Colorado Bureau of Investigation, the Colorado State Patrol, the Division of Criminal Justice, the Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Management, the Division of Fire Prevention and Control, and the Colorado School Safety Resource Center.

Under Davis’ leadership, the state successfully integrated homeland security, emergency management, and wildland firefighting into CDPS. The result was more effective responses to emergencies including the Waldo Canyon and Black Forest fires, and the floods of September 2013.Davis also supervised the return of Port of Entry to the Colorado State Patrol, leading to more efficient motor carrier safety inspections, improved traffic safety, and reduced wear and tear on highways.

Prior to his service with the governor, Davis served almost 26 years in the Federal Bureau of Investigation. As Special Agent in Charge of the Denver Division, he was responsible for all FBI investigative, intelligence, and administrative operations in Colorado and Wyoming. During his tenure, Davis oversaw the investigation and disruption of a 2009 al-Qaeda terrorist plot, served as the senior federal law enforcement official for the 2008 Democratic National Convention, directed a four-year undercover operation that resulted in the conviction of over two dozen public officials and organized crime figures in Chicago. As an FBI agent Davis served nearly two years in Iraq and Afghanistan, leading the team responsible for the initial processing of Saddam Hussein after his capture in December 2003.

Davis currently serves on the Board of Directors of the Mizel Institute in Denver and the Denver Police Foundation. Previously, Davis served as Chair of the Governors Homeland Security Advisors Council, the Colorado Commission on Criminal and Juvenile Justice, and the Colorado Homeland Security and All-Hazards Senior Advisory Committee. He was a member of the US Criminal Intelligence Coordination Council, the International Association of Chiefs of Police Committee on Terrorism, and the Governor’s Expert Emergency Epidemic Response Committee.

Davis is Michigan State University alum with a Bachelor’s Degree in Accounting. He is a principal in Longmont-based Public Safety Ventures, a venture capital firm focused on public safety technology. He is also the founder and chief executive officer of the Denver-based security and risk management consulting firm Ascent Risk Solutions.
