Boston law enforcement jobs created with new appointment
Posted on November 19, 2013
A new edition to Boston law enforcement jobs has been created, as Mayor Thomas M. Menino recently appointed Superintendent William B. Evans to Interim Police Commissioner of the Boston Police Department.
Commissioner Evans will serve as the City’s Interim Commissioner until the appointment of a permanent Police Commissioner by the newly elected Mayor of Boston in 2014.
Evans joined the ranks of the Boston Police Department as a patrol officer in 1982 and rose through the ranks becoming Captain of area D-4 in 2006, a post that brought him in close contact with religious leaders, community groups and business owners and most recently to the management team as Superintendent of the Bureau of Field Services. Acting Commissioner Evans is a 2008 graduate of Harvard University, John F. Kennedy School of Government and recently completed a certificate program for Senior Executives in State and Local Government and participated in the National Preparedness Leadership Initiative, John F. Kennedy School of Government/Harvard School of Public Health as well as National Post-Graduate School & U.S. Department of Homeland Security, Executive Leaders’ Program.
Commissioner Evans is a 31-year veteran of the Boston Police Department and has held a leadership role within the Department for the past several years. Superintendent Evans has had notable roles in both the successful, peaceful handling of the 70 day occupation of Dewey Square by Occupy Boston and the capture of suspected Boston Marathon bombing terrorist Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.
“The Boston Police Department will be in great hands under the leadership of Bill Evans,” Mayor Menino said. “He knows how to manage his team of talented officers, has the respect of the rank and file and has proven his ability to diffuse even the most difficult of public safety situations.”
