Dodgers Hire Former LAPD Chief to Review Stadium Security
The LA Dodgers have hired former Los Angeles Police Chief William J. Bratton to review security measures at the stadium after a San Francisco Giants fan was severely beaten during the Dodgers' home opener.
"Bill Bratton is widely credited with spearheading modern community policing in America," Los Angeles Dodgers owner Frank McCourt said in a statement. "There is no one better to lead a top-to-bottom review of our current practices and make recommendations to be implemented now and into the future."
Bratton is the chairman of Kroll, an international security firm that will oversee the report for the Dodgers. The Dodgers said in the statement that Kroll would begin to "assess policies and procedures related to security and fan services" immediately.
