Former Boston Police commissioner, Ed Davis, is assisting Curry College with current and ongoing security protocols, as the investigation into the weeks’ long hate crimes continues. The news came in an email announcement to the community where the president of the college, Ken Quigley, also talked about a campus-wide virtual meeting to be held Friday, February 25th.
Davis, best known for helming the department during the 2013 Boston Marathon bombings, is reviewing aspects of Curry’s public safety measures, and offering advice for improvement moving forward. He is now President and CEO of Edward A. Davis and Associates, a security consulting firm.
The college is also working with Milton Police to locate the perpetrator(s) of the series of anti-semitic drawings and targeted messages to Curry’s Jewish and Black communities. One message specifically mentioned violence would happen on Tuesday, February 22nd, and the college announced all classes would be held remotely that day. Additional Milton Police patrols, along with Public Safety rounds, are now in place on campus.
The college is holding a mandatory, college wide, virtual event on Friday, February 25th from 1 to 4 p.m. In an announcement, officials said the college “will come together as a community for honest, reflective, and productive conversations at a virtual event, “Showing Up for Each Other: Becoming Authentic; Allies, Advocates, and Accountability Partners.”
The college has also announced that a $10,000 reward is being offered for any information that leads to the arrest and conviction of the suspect(s).
