LAPD Chief Bratton Named President of Prestigious Major Cities Chiefs Association NR09259SF

Los Angeles:  The Major Cities Chiefs Association (MCC) has elected Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) Chief William J. Bratton as the organization's new president.  Founded in 1966, MCC was established to address the concerns and needs of the nation's largest metropolitan law enforcement executives.  The association focuses its efforts on crime reduction strategies, examination of criminal justice and homeland security policy issues, monitoring legislative trends and law-enforcement-specific legislation, and serves as an advocate for public safety at federal, state, and local levels.

MCC is a professional organization of police executives representing the 63 largest urban police departments in the United States and Canada.  All MCC members must serve a core city population greater than 500,000 and employ more than 1,000 sworn officers.  Today, with its reputation as a leading law enforcement professional organization, MCC continues its growth with executive training, research, and criminal justice and homeland security policy development. MCC articulates the public safety needs of large cities in the formulation of criminal justice policy, and MCC members are frequently called to testify in Congress on current law enforcement and homeland security issues.

Chief Bratton has been the LAPD chief of police since October 2002.  He currently leads the third largest police department in the United States, with 9,939 sworn officers, 3,000 civilian employees and an annual budget of more than $1 billion.

Aside from his extensive experience and tenure in law enforcement, Chief Bratton is a graduate of the Federal Bureau of Investigation National Executive Institute and was a Senior Executive Fellow at the John F. Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University.  He is also the only chief executive to serve two terms as the elected president of the Police Executive Research Forum.

Because of Chief Bratton's innovation, experience and international reputation for fighting crime, MCC chose Chief Bratton as its new president. "I am privileged, and it is an honor to represent such a constructive organization of law enforcement colleagues.  Collectively, the value and effectiveness of the MCC has a continual and significant impact on law enforcement worldwide," said Chief Bratton.

Chief Bratton's two-year term as president of the Major Cities Chiefs Association is effective immediately.  For more information about MCC, please visit: www.majorcitieschiefs.org.
