Chief William Evans, former Commissioner of the Boston Police Department, will talk about dealing with inner-city violence as well as dealing with major challenges as The Boston Marathon bombings, Occupy Boston and numerous protests.
William B. Evans is currently serving as the Executive Director of Public Safety & Chief of Police for Boston College. Previously, Evans was the Commissioner of the Boston Police Department.
He became a Boston Police Department Cadet in 1980. Over the next four decades, he steadily worked his way up through the ranks before becoming Commissioner – patrolman, sergeant, lieutenant, captain, and superintendent.
On April 15, 2013, Evans ran the Boston Marathon, then led the department’s response to the bombings. He organized the police efforts up through that final night in Watertown when the younger Tsarnaev brother was captured alive. Later in 2013, Mayor Menino appointed Evans interim police commissioner; he was permanently appointed by Mayor Marty Walsh early in 2014.
In this free webinar, Chief Evans will talk about dealing with inner-city violence as well as dealing with major challenges as The Boston Marathon bombings, Occupy Boston and numerous protests.
