L.A. Police Chief William J. Bratton Named PERF President

"L.A. Police Chief William J. Bratton Named PERF President"

 

Los Angeles: The Police Executive Research Forum (PERF) today announced that Chief William J. Bratton was selected by its members to serve as the organization’s President. Chief Bratton will carry out his term while continuing to serve as Chief for the Los Angeles Police Department.

Chief Bratton will be joined on the PERF Board by Kansas City Chief Richard Easley; Pasadena Chief Bernard Melekian; Providence Chief Dean Esserman; Washington, DC, Chief Charles Ramsey; Lowell, MA, Superintendent Ed Davis; and Chicago Deputy Superintendent Barbara McDonald.

PERF is a Washington DC-based nonprofit organization whose members are primarily law enforcement chief executives who collectively serve more than half the nation’s population. The organization is committed to improving policing through national leadership debate, technical assistance and research.

"I feel privileged to work with some of the most innovative leaders in policing," said Chief Bratton. "PERF has always exemplified progressive policing and demonstrated a commitment to advancing how we serve all communities. I was honored to serve as PERF President from 1993 to 1996 when I was the Commissioner of the NYPD and look forward to working with its members and Board to again move forward the organization’s work."

"I have known Chief Bratton for more than 25 years, since our work together in the Boston Police Department," said PERF Executive Director Chuck Wexler. "He is a man of great dedication, vision and drive; I know he will bring tremendous energy and talent to the position and PERF will be the better for it."
