CEDAR RAPIDS - Officer Tim Davis has returned to work on a limited basis. The Cedar Rapids Police Officer was seriously injured while responding to a robbery on March 29th.

Cedar Rapids Police say Officer Davis is completing the first two weeks of work therapy and it working just two hours a day. “It feels great to be back to work,” says Officer Davis. His duties include scanning documents and updating records.

As part of the agreement with the doctors, the two hours that Officer Davis is at work, is part of his vocational therapy. Officer Davis needs to be challenged and the work he is doing will challenge him and aide in his recovery.

Police Chief Greg Graham says doctors were reluctant to let Officer Davis return to work. “I called Tim’s doctors and assured them that he would not be in uniform and in a squad car, arresting anyone, although that is our ultimate goal. It just isn’t going to happen for a while,” said Chief Graham. “Tim is part of our family and we want him home with us at the department.”
