Video: Boston Police Commissioner Ed Davis Relates to Longwood Security Officers

Boston Police Commissioner Ed Davis took the time out of his busy schedule to speak at the 2010 edition of the Longwood Security Awards Day Ceremony. Commisssioner Davis reflected on his more than 32 years in law enforcement and the changing dynamics of public safety. 

Notably, Commissioner Davis remarked that he too began his career as a security officer. He went on to explain that 20 years ago police officers outnumbered security officers. That ratio has shifted dramatically. Today, security officers outnumber police officers by more than 3 to 1. As a result, crime rates have fallen significantly over that period.
