Statement of Mayor Thomas M. Menino on Police Commissioner Edward F. Davis

Posted by


Over the past seven years, Ed Davis has served the people of Boston with integrity, a steady hand, and compassion. Under the Commissioner’s watch, serious and violent crime in the City of Boston has decreased substantially. His focus on community policing has empowered our residents and increased community trust, positioning our officers as residents’ allies in making our neighborhoods safer. During some of our City’s most trying days, Commissioner Davis worked relentlessly to protect the safety of all our citizens.

On behalf of the entire City of Boston, I thank Commissioner Davis for his leadership and tireless commitment to improve the quality of life for the people of Boston. We will work together over the coming days to ensure a smooth transition as a new mayor is elected and appoints his or her own Commissioner for the Boston Police Department.
