'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

LOWELL, Mass. — Boston's police department and mayor's office will conduct twin reviews of the response to last month's bombing of the Boston Marathon, police commissioner Ed Davis said Saturday.

Davis said the aim of the reviews is to learn from the experience and prepare for the future.

“We are very anxious to get those reviews under way and learn lessons from anything that might pop up as an issue of concern,” Davis said. “I expect that this whole year will be a time of review and reflection on what happened.”

Davis addressed reporters after delivering the commencement address at the University of Massachusetts Lowell. The event occurred a little more than a month after the April 15 bombings that killed three people and wounded more than 260. The attacks made Davis a national figure.

He said one review, of all of the city's response services, will be conducted under the leadership of Mayor Thomas Menino and his office of Emergency Management. The second investigation will look at best practices and will be funded by the Department of Justice Office of Community Oriented Policing Services.
