Davis was the Chief of Police in Los Angeles from 1926-1931, and again from 1933-1939. When he first served in 1926, he was the youngest police chief in Los Angeles history, at age 37.William F. Hynes was a Captain of detectives for the L.A.P.D., and engaged in "busting" Communist, "Red", and/or "radical" activities in Los Angeles. At the time of this photo, Hynes would have likely been the head of the L.A.P.D.'s intelligence bureau, a position he held from 1927 until the bureau was dissolved in 1938.
