The man who cleaned up the streets of New York is to help mastermind Boris Johnson's crime crackdown in London....
Mr Bratton, who is now head of Los Angeles police, oversaw reforms in bureaucracy and policing in New York which produced stunning results where crime rates nose-dived and quality of life soared.
"Bill Bratton can teach us a lot about reducing crime," a Tory source said. "Obviously, he's not going to be a day-today adviser but he will be on the end of a phone to offer help."
