Bratton, 66, was named the new commissioner Thursday at the Red Hook Justice Community Center by incoming Mayor Bill de Blasio, who issued a news release trumpeting the hire.

"Bill Bratton is a proven crime-fighter," de Blasio said in advance of the announcement. "He knows what it takes to keep a city safe, and make communities full partners in the mission."
