BOSTON (AP) — Boston Police Commissioner Edward Davis who announced he's stepping down after seven years will hold a news conference to discuss his future plans.
Police spokeswoman Cheryl Fiandaca says Davis will meet with the news media on Monday morning. The commissioner gave his resignation to Mayor Thomas Menino a day earlier.
The 57-year-old Davis was appointed Boston's top cop by Menino in 2006. He previously served as the Lowell, Mass., superintendent of police.
Menino opted not to seek another term and Boston is poised to have a new mayor for the first time in two decades. Davis' departure comes just as the race to replace Menino kicks into high gear. A preliminary election on Tuesday will whittle a dozen candidates down to two for the Nov. 5 election.
