Newly elected Boston Mayor Marty Walsh on Thursday plans to name William Evans, a 31-year-veteran of the city’s police force, as its new police commissioner. Evans has been in the job in an interim capacity since Edward Davis, who was thrust into the national spotlight for his steady leadership after the April 15 bombing attack at the Boston Marathon, stepped down late last year. He also served as the department’s lead in managing relations with the 2011 Occupy Boston camp, part of a national movement of protesters who argued that the U.S. economic system no longer worked to the benefit of most Americans.
