Davis Quinton is Dog River's overly-sensitive senior police officer who has a habit of misspending the police budget and making up the laws as he goes along. This leaves him and Karen Pelly (the only other officer in town) with a lot of down time. He is obsessed with Cosmopolitan Magazine, retro-TV, classic cartoons and science fiction. He believes that the original Battlestar Galactica may have really happened. He loves rhythmic gymnastics and also has a collection of the original Hardy Boys books. Davis is divorced. His mother left him when he was a baby to join a band and and he thought his cleaning lady was his Mom. He's a member of the Cree Nation. ("I Love Lacey") He's portrayed by Lorne Cardinal.
Karen and Davis argue about whose police cruiser is "Car One" and are thrilled that Lacey has opened the Ruby Cafe and is serving good coffee. Lacey offends Davis when she overturns her Aunt Ruby's free coffee policy for Dog River's police officers, which places Karen in an awkward position when she offers to pay for coffee. Davis is part of the conspiracy that involves Brent and Hank having painted the town's water tower when they graduated in 1986.
