Last Day on the Job for Boston Police Commissioner

ed davisBOSTON (AP) — Boston’s top cop is moving on.

Friday is Police Commissioner Ed Davis’ last day at headquarters. He announced in September that he planned to move on after seven years on the job. One of his final tasks was helping make sure that celebrations following the Red Sox’ World Series victory at Fenway Park didn’t get out of hand.

Davis became a nationally-recognized figure in the aftermath of the Boston Marathon bombings in April.

In separate interviews with The Boston Globe and the Boston Herald on Thursday, the 57-year-old Davis said he would be open to running another big-city police department in the future, but for now plans to spend time outside of law enforcement.

Retiring Boston Mayor Thomas Menino is expected to name an interim commissioner to serve until the city’s next mayor names a permanent replacement.
