For Immediate Release
U.S. Attorney's Office, Southern District of New York

U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara said:  “Commissioner Bratton has been a great leader of the finest police force in the world.  For his strong stewardship of the NYPD during these challenging times for law enforcement, every New Yorker owes him a debt of gratitude.  Over a long career, on both coasts, no one has done more for policing and public safety in America’s largest cities than Bill Bratton.  Under his leadership, the relationship between the NYPD and our office is as strong as ever.  He has become a personal friend to me and a great law enforcement partner to my office.  I thank him for his service to the people of our great city and all the others he has served around the country during his long and distinguished career in public life.”
