William Bratton has announced that he is resigning as the NYPD Commissioner after 2 years in that position and 46 years as an officer. Bratton has been trying to decrease the crime rate in the city, and to do so he introduced CompStat, which keeps track of the amount of crimes taking place in an area during a specific time frame.
He is now infamous for CompStat, and for his dedication to protecting the lives of those living in the state. Apparently the job is too much for him now and he’s taking on a new job within a private sector of the force next month. The new Police Commissioner is now the chief of the police department, James O’Neil.
Mayor of NYC, Bill de Blasio, has scheduled a news conference to take place this afternoon at City Hall to speak on the resignation.
