The Decisions Surrounding The Boston Marathon Bombing Tragedy

Edward Davis, Boston's police commissioner during the Boston Marathon bombings in 2013, recounted his experiences and decisions from that week in an interview with CRN.

Just one day before the third anniversary of the attack, Davis (pictured) discussed the events that led to the capture of one of the two suspects (the other died following a shootout), the decisions he made, and how he believes solution providers can help police departments become better equipped to do their jobs, such as replacing outdated technologies with newer, better-connected systems. The attacks on April 15, 2013, left three people dead and injured nearly 300 others.

The interview with Davis, who now heads his own security and management consulting business, came after the former Boston police commissioner received a standing ovation after a keynote address Thursday before an audience of 400 solution providers, vendors and Synnex employees at Synnex's Red, White and You conference -- focusing on public-sector technology -- in Dallas.
