El Paso police Officer Slade Davis looks for the bright spots amid the illness, worry and fear in this time of the coronavirus pandemic.

"This is to help you help others, that’s right along with my job," Davis said in April 2020, referring to the gear and measures intended to curb the spread of the virus.
