Could Bratton Again Be New York City Police Commissioner?


William Bratton, recently retired police chief of Los Angeles, eventually would like to return as New York City police commissioner, says New York Magazine. Bratton, is now CEO of New York City-based Altegrity Security Consulting, which hopes to overhaul criminal-justice systems in places like Afghanistan, Iraq, and other “post-conflict nations.”

Bratton says he is not interested in elective political office, running the FBI, or heading the Department of Homeland Security. He tells the magazine: “There are some people who want me to come back as New York City police commissioner. And that's not so far-fetched at all. If you were a candidate in the city running for mayor, and you've got one of the biggest names in American policing and somebody who had basically begun the process of making New York safe? They'll all be knocking on my door.”
