Police Commissioner Edward Davis to go out with a snap

Edward F. Davis, the Boston police commissioner who will step down Nov. 1, has seen his profile rise in recent months.

He testified before the US Senate on terrorism following the Boston Marathon bomb attacks, has been rumored to be on a list of possible candidates to become the next head of Homeland Security, and has been sought by news media around the world.

So it would stand to reason that his celebrity status would extend to his own department.

An e-mail from the commissioner’s office went out today informing department employees that Davis would be walking through headquarters Thursday and Friday to greet employees and thank them for their service. But he would not be alone. A department photographer would join him for anyone who wants a grip-and-grin photo with Davis on their mantlepiece.

“Some members have called to express an interest in wishing the Commissioner well and taking a photo,” the e-mail stated. “To accommodate that request, a department photographer will be on hand during the walk for those [who] may be interested.”

The e-mail did not make clear whether the pictures would be available in wallet size.
