BOSTON (CBS) — Boston Police Commissioner Ed Davis is expected to announce his resignation on Monday, a police official told WBZ-TV.
At 10 a.m. Monday, Davis is scheduled to “discuss his future plans” during a press conference at Boston Police Headquarters, according to a Tweet from the Boston Police.
Davis rose to national prominence during the law enforcement response to the Boston Marathon bombings. His calm demeanor during multiple press conferences on the bombings and the search for those responsible drew widespread praise across the country.
Dorothy Joyce, a spokeswoman for Mayor Tom Menino, provided the following statement from the mayor to WBZ-TV: “Thanks Commissioner Davis for his tremendous work over the past seven years and (the Menino administration) will work with him to make sure there is a smooth transition as a new mayor comes into office to find their own full-time replacement for police commissioner.”
