The Bossier City police officer who's been recovering from the West Nile virus saw a lot of support from fellow officers on Friday.

A lunch fundraiser was held outside the Bossier City Police Department for Officer Chris Davis.  

Back in August, Davis contracted the West Nile virus. He was hospitalized for nine days and lost about 35 pounds.

Fellow officers, firefighters, and others turned out to make a donation and eat grilled hamburgers and sausages.

"To have people you don't even know... I just met a gentleman a minute ago, and he said he's a citizen of Bossier and he just appreciates what I do, I mean that's huge, that's stuff I don't ever see," said Davis, who attended the fundraiser.

The event was hosted by the Fraternal Order of Police Lodge 39, Bossier City Police Local 645, and the Bossier City Fire Department.
