Bratton on future of NYPD's terrorism fight
NEW YORK (FOX 5 NEWS) - On the day after the anniversary if 9/11, Police Commissioner Bill Bratton answered questions on where the NYPD stands in the fight against terrorism.
The commissioner spoke at a forum hosted by the Citizens Crime Commission of New York City, a nonpartisan criminal justice think tank. Bratton said the city will be in good hands with his successor, current Chief of Department Jim O'Neill, and explained how the NYPD has adapted to deal with terrorism.
Bratton said community and "broken windows" policing will continue despite criticism this month from the NYPD's inspector general that broken windows is not working to reduce more serious crimes.
Bratton said the city is going to see more police officers using bicycles in the future, an initiative that grew out of the quick-forming demonstrations that have occurred in the past two years.
