Former Boston Police Commissioner Edward F. Davis’s next gig could be protecting Fenway Park.

The Red Sox said Friday they are in talks with Davis about providing security consulting services for the 102-year-old stadium.

“The agreement would entail providing wide-ranging security assessments and planning for the ballpark, resulting in increased security for fans attending games and Red Sox staff,” said team spokeswoman Zineb Curran.


Davis also is discussing security services with The Boston Globe, said Ellen Clegg, a spokeswoman for the newspaper. Red Sox principal owner John W. Henry owns the Globe. No agreements have been finalized.
