Davis was BPD commish during the Marathon bombing. As I recall (was living in the Boston area for about half of his tenure) he didn't have any huge scandals and crime mostly declined. Dunno his rep beyond that, though.

My recollection is that even before the bombing he was pretty well respected and liked, at least as much as the commissioner of a police department can be. He was also the commissioner in Lowell in the 90s when that city got significantly cleaned up.
