SALEM, Mass. (AP) – The men who led the FBI’s Boston office and the city police department at the time of the Boston Marathon bombing are scheduled to discuss the attack at Salem State University this week.

Former Special Agent in Charge Richard DesLauriers (deh-LOHR’-ee-ay) and former Police Commissioner Edward Davis are speaking at the university Thursday.

They will share their story of the bombing, the law enforcement response, the hunt for the offenders, and the rebuilding of community confidence.

They will also address homegrown terrorism and discuss why some citizens feel compelled to commit terrorist attacks.

A portion of the proceeds from the event will benefit the university’s Sean Collier Criminal Justice Scholarship. Collier, a Massachusetts Institute of Technology officer killed by the marathon bombers, was a Salem State graduate.
