Mayor Elect Bill deBlasio has chosen Bill Bratton to be the next New York City Police Commissioner. Bratton is the former NYC Police Commissioner who was appointed by Mayor Rudy Giuliani in 1994 when Giuliani won the mayoral election in 1993. Bratton introduced the CompStat system of tracking crimes, which proved successful in reducing crime in New York City which is still being used by the police department today.
Bratton resigned as police commissioner in 1996 under a cloud of a book deal. He became police commissioner of Los Angles in 2002, and his latest employment was as a consultant for the city of Oakland in early 2013.
