According to his supervisor, Sergeant Bobbie Epperson, Detective Billings has an impeccable work ethic and is highly motivated to serve his community both on and off-duty.  Prior to joining the department, Detective Billings worked with at-risk youth and mentored children in the foster care system.  He has personally fostered around 40 children and continues to serve those in need.  In fact, his most recent benevolence was demonstrated when he encountered the children of a violent crime victim he was investigating.  When Detective Billings learned that the crime victim had lost his job, he and his wife adopted that family for the Christmas holidays and delivered presents to the children.
