US Representative William R. Keating and the chairman of the House Committee on Homeland Security met with law enforcement officials in Boston and Watertown Friday to discuss the panel’s ongoing investigation of the Boston Marathon bombings.

Keating, a Bourne Democrat who sits on the committee, said he and chairman Michael McCaul spent the day with officials from the FBI, State Police, and Boston and Watertown police, among other agencies.

Keating declined to discuss the meetings in detail but said, “We got some very good, practical ideas on ways to better share information and ways to maybe use resources better” to prevent future attacks.

Watertown Police Chief Edward Deveau said the congressmen and other officials had “a private view of what occurred in Watertown.”
