The funeral for Oliver took place on Monday.

The funeral service for Detective Davis will be held at 10 a.m. Tuesday at Adventure Christian Church. The service is open to the public, but there is limited space.

Drivers could see traffic congestion, including during a procession from Chapel of the Valley, 97 Vernon Street in Roseville, to the church. Roseville police will be blocking Vernon Street from 8 to 9 a.m., from Lincoln to Atlantic streets.

The hearse and small procession will leave the mortuary at 9 a.m. and travel from Vernon Street to Atlantic, right on Wills Road, left on Galleria Boulevard., left on East Roseville Parkway, right on Pleasant Grove Blvd., right on Highland Park, then straight into the church parking lot.

Fire trucks will line the route to honor Detective Davis. After the church service, there will be a large procession to Newcastle Cemetery for private burial.
