Dodgers Hire Bratton To Review Security Proceedures

April 08, 2011  | 

The Los Angeles Dodgers have hired former Los Angeles Police Chief Bill Bratton to review their security proceedures, following the severe beating of a Northern California paramedic at a game with the rival San Francisco Giants.

Bratton, the Los Angeles Police chief from 2002 to 2009, is the chairman of Kroll, an international security firm that will produce a report assessing security issues at Dodger Stadium, reports the Los Angeles Times.

Giants fan Bryan Stow was critically injured in the attack, and remains in a coma with a brain injury. Following Dodger owner Frank McCourt's announcement of the hiring, the Los Angeles Police Protective League issued a statement endording the move.

"We strongly support the aggressive measures that will be undertaken at Dodger Stadium to quash violence and rowdy behavior displayed by a few individuals," according to Paul M. Weber, LAPPL president. "A baseball game should be a safe and enjoyable event for everyone. Chief Charlie Beck's commitment to provide a highly visible presence and prompt response by uniformed LAPD officers will serve as both a deterrent to rogue behavior and an assurance to all fans of any team that they can attend Dodger games and root for their team without fearing for their personal safety."
