Davis defends police diversity

Raps complaints of minority officers

Boston Police Commissioner Edward F. Davis lashed out Monday at a minority officers’ group that has called for his resignation, accusing the organization of engaging in “divisive efforts” to undermine the progress he has made on diversity within the ranks.

In an open letter published on the official Police Department website, Davis wrote that the Massachusetts Association of Minority Law Enforcement Officers “hasn’t proposed legislation or undertaken any valuable initiatives to help its own members or the community.”
