The Allston Board of Trade would like to congratulate William B. Evans on his permanent appointment as Boston Police Commissioner.  ABOT is thrilled with Mayor Walsh’s decision to make Commissioner Evans the permanent Police Commisioner after serving as acting commissioner when Commissioner Davis stepped down.  As Commissioner, he has already made an impact with his appointments which have reshaped department leadership to reflect the diversity of this city.

William Evans is a local legend having served District 14 as a patrol officer in the 1980’s, then returning as a Lieutenant/Night Commander in 1992, and being promoted to Captain of District 14 in 1997 to 2006.  As Captain, he instituted a Zero-Tolerance policy for underage drinking in response to the excessive partying among college students in our neighborhood.  He left our district to serve as Commander of District D-4, and then, in 2009, was promoted to Superintendent, Chief, Bureau of Field Services where he played a key role in the response to the Marathon Bombing tragedy. 

The Allston Board of Trade is proud to have honored Commissioner Evans at our Annual Dinner this past September and we extend our best wishes for continued excellence in leading the Boston Police Department.
