Chief Bratton Honored with Local Community Award

Los Angeles: On Sunday, March 18, 2007, Police Chief William Bratton became the first-ever recipient of the South Los Angeles Community Barber Shop Award. It was presented at the Bryant Temple AME Church in South Los Angeles. The Reverend Dr. Clyde W. Ogden, Jr., is the pastor at the church.

"I am honored to be recognized by Mr. Tolliver and his group," said Chief Bratton. "Tolliver's Barber Shop is an institution in South Los Angeles that has its finger on the pulse of the city."

Several hundred people were in attendance as the Pastor and church members thanked the Chief for showing great concern for South Los Angeles residents. The Chief and Mrs. Bratton stayed for the entire service and thanked members of the church as they left.

The award was created to recognize public officials who have made significant contributions to improving the quality of life for residents in South Los Angeles, making it a better place to live, work and play.

Tolliver's Barber Shop has become a local, informal think tank where politicians, journalists, and community activists drop in to discuss important issues of the day. The shop is located at 1735 West Florence Avenue. Chief Bratton was selected as the inaugural honoree by a committee made up of regular barbershop members.
