PITTSFIELD, Mass. (AP) - Former Boston Police Commissioner Edward Davis is scheduled to appear in Pittsfield this week to speak about policing in the modern age.

Davis is expected to deliver a talk entitled Urban Terrorism and the Boston Marathon Bombings at Berkshire Community College on Friday. He will present issues of relevance to policing and speak about the importance of planning and innovation in police work.

He gained national attention in the hunt for the suspects in the April 2013 Boston Marathon bombings. He stepped down in September after seven years in Boston.

Davis is appearing as part of the Mona Sherman Lecture series.
