After athletes retire from their jobs in the NFL, it’s always interesting to see where their passion takes them.

One day, Dawson Knox could be a synchronized Star Wars choreographer, Steve Tasker could become a bean farmer, and Josh Allen could become a guitar tech for a Lynyrd Skynyrd tribute band…as they joked in the video below.
On a more serious note, though, an NFL player dedicates his life to protecting the Buffalo community following his NFL career, and he deserves serious kudos for that.
You may remember Dominique “Niko” Davis from his time with the Pittsburgh Steelers or the Kansas City Chiefs, and while he made marks on the court, he’s making even more now for the city of Buffalo.
Davis was born in West Buffalo and raised in Western New York. He (rather quietly) joined the Buffalo Police Department as a patrol officer in 2020, according to Niagara Frontier Publicationswith the intention of having a positive impact on the city he called home.
Now Davis is rising through the ranks of the Buffalo Police Department.
Dominique Davis has been named the new executive director of the Buffalo Police Explorers, replacing division founder Det. Joelle Bence. However, Bence still has a role with the department and she will become the Buffalo Police Explorers’ chief financial officer.
The Buffalo Police Department shared the news on their Facebook page.
“The Buffalo Police Department would like to congratulate Constable Davis on becoming the new Executive Director of the Buffalo Police Explorers.
We also thank the former Executive Director, Detective Joelle Bence, during her tenure as Executive Director she made substantial contributions to the organization and the community. Bence led the first-ever 501c3 for Explorers within the Buffalo Police Department, which enabled the Buffalo Police Department to raise funds for young teens living in the city of Buffalo. In addition, Bence also created a finance council and launched several successful fundraising and awareness campaigns. »
