Character Information Edit
During her introduction in "Heart Failure", she was very hostile toward the Major Crimes Division and especially Captain Raydor. She was reportedly "up in arms" about the way Lt. Provenza left the active shooter response training and claiming Provenza cheated (which he kind of did). The Major Crimes Division also fears that the cheating could be a way to push Cpt. Raydor out of the race for Assistant Chief, which would not matter to Sharon as she points out. She also dislikes the fact that Major Crimes is and always has been the Chiefs favorite, always getting what it wants in terms of resources, and leaving other divisions with less money and access to those same resources.
She was also very hostile against Acting Assistant Chief Fritz Howard even though he is currently her boss, claiming that the department lacks firm leadership under his command, most likely because of his history in the F.B.I. and the fact that the department would not accept an "outsider" like him as the Assistant Chief on a permanent basis. This hostility could be explained by the fact that as the Assistant Director of Operations she might feel that the position of Director of Operations should have been hers from the start and Howard, and everybody else in the race to Assistant Chief, are invading into her "territory".
In "Dead Drop", Davis is less than pleased with Sharon's tactics in catching an interstate drug smuggling operation, particularly due to the amount of overtime money it costs the LAPD. She is also less than pleased when DDA Hobbs offers to let two drug smugglers go free in exchange for information but is pacified when Hobbs then turns them over to the DEA whose jurisdiction interstate drug smuggling falls under. She was also less than pleased when Lt. Tao had requested immediate access to the LAPD's geo-fencing software, even though there were multiple people in line to use it before him. And as stated before, when Major Crimes asks for something, it is usually going to get it, and this draws ire from Davis as she has to tell everyone else to wait until MCD is finished. It also appears that the geo-fencing software is somewhat connected to the RACR Division and their operations, meaning that RACR might be under Davis' supervision.
In "Shockwave, Part 1", Davis told Raydor and Flynn that because Acting Assistant Chief Fritz Howard was in Charlotte, NC, Chief Pope had ordered her to coordinate between divisions during the bombing crisis which caused the death of a SID technician. This once again caused friction between Davis and Raydor, as Raydor wanted to investigate the bombing as a murder and Davis wanted to investigate it as a act of terror. Davis' actions result in her getting sent to the conference while Fritz Howard returns and apparently removes her from the running for Assistant Chief as revealed in "Shockwave, Part 2". Ultimately, the role goes to Leo Mason who promotes Sharon to the rank of Commander and allows Fritz to keep his job as Deputy Chief of SOB. What happened to Davis following Mason's promotion is unknown.
