David Splain, the New President of the Pennsylvania Chiefs of Police Association
Last month, Splain was officially inaugurated as president of the Pennsylvania Chiefs of Police Association and police chief in Nether Providence in Delaware County.
Larios’ defense attempted to exclude evidence pertaining to Splain’s testimony as it lacked probative value and would cause confusion within the jury pool, thus unnecessarily prejudicing Larios.
Early Life and Education
Splain hails from Allentown and attended an elite prep school outside Philadelphia. According to his senior yearbook bio, Splain donned the red and black uniform of Semper Fi Society while joining their rifle team, wearing his senior yearbook bio as proof.
At college, he became interested in law enforcement. He worked as a seasonal police officer in North Wildwood, N.J. before later joining Darby Police Department part-time before eventually becoming full-time officer for Yeadon Township Police Department.
Splain’s shootings raised questions as to whether police agencies can conduct independent investigations into fatal shootings. Although his cases were deemed justified by prosecutors and grand juries, their deaths raise issues regarding independent police investigations into fatal shootings.
An experienced police officer of 32 years, Splain understands the value of teamwork to do an effective job. His department handles between 850-1,100 calls per month and has seen its share of high-profile crimes. Through it all, Splain has witnessed highs and lows; not afraid to admit it’s never easy balancing his commitment with managing bosses; an art he’s managed to perfect while maintaining positive morale within his department despite having endured fire, disease and even death; something his superiors recognize for.
