De Blasio Picks Bratton as Police Chief

New York City Mayor-elect Bill de Blasio (D) named William Bratton to lead the New York Police Department, the New York Times reports.

"The move will return Mr. Bratton to the helm of the nation's largest force at a time of historically low crime rates and a deepening rift between officers and the public. The appointment has been highly anticipated and will most likely be among the most consequential for Mr. de Blasio, who turned discontent with the Police Department's stop-and-frisk practices into a key part of his winning election run."
