Captain Brian Pratt was born and raised in Youngstown, Ohio until 1981 when he moved to Southern California.  Captain Pratt joined the United States Marine Corps in 1982 and served four years of active duty in both California and Hawaii. 

Captain Pratt joined the Los Angeles Police Department in 1988 and served as a police officer in Central, Southeast, and Rampart Areas as a patrol officer, Special Problems Unit officer, and Gang Enforcement Detail officer. 

In 1994, Captain Pratt was promoted to Sergeant and returned to Southeast Area where he supervised the Footbeat Patrols in the housing communities.  In 1996, Pratt transferred to Southwest Area where he supervised patrol officers before being selected to lead the Southwest Gang Enforcement Detail.  In 1998, Pratt was promoted to Sergeant II at Internal Affairs Division and assigned to South Section investigations.  Shortly after arriving at Internal Affairs Division, Pratt was selected to be an investigator in the Special Operations Section of Internal Affairs Division.  

In 2001, Captain Pratt was promoted to Lieutenant I and returned again to Southeast Area as a Watch Commander.  While at Southeast, Pratt worked closely with both the business and residential communities to strengthen the police-community relationship.  In 2003, Pratt was promoted to Lieutenant II and selected as one of the Department’s first Gang Impact Team leaders.  Pratt was assigned to the West Los Angeles Area where he developed strong relationships with the residential, business and elected leaders. This collaboration proved to be a powerful force in reducing actual gang crime and the communities’ perception of crime.  In 2005, Captain Pratt was selected to be the Commanding Officer of Rampart Area Detectives, where he continued his efforts in violent crime reduction and improving the police-community relationship.

During 2006, Captain Pratt was selected to be the Adjutant to the Commanding Officer of Consent Decree Bureau.  In this assignment Pratt worked closely with Department Leadership, and the Federal Monitor to ensure the Department met the requirements of the Federal Consent Decree.  In 2008, Captain Pratt was selected as the Officer-in-Charge of the Categorical Use of Force Section at Use of Force Review Division.  In this assignment, he worked closely with Department Leadership and the Police Commission in the adjudication of categorical use of force incidents.  In April of 2011, Captain Pratt was promoted to Captain and appointed as the Commanding Officer of Northeast Patrol Division. Captain Pratt then transferred to Van Nuys Area as the Patrol Commanding Officer in September 2012 for a short period as the patrol Division, and was then promoted to his current position as the Commanding Officer Valley Traffic Division.  

Captain Pratt holds a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Criminal Justice Administration from the Union Institute and University.  Additionally, Captain Pratt has graduated from the University of Louisville, Southern Police Institute, Session 114, and the Federal Bureau of Investigations National Academy, Session 230.   

Captain Pratt has been married for six years and enjoys spending his spare time with his family, golfing, and a variety of fitness related activities.
