LOS ANGELES – The Dodgers have hired former Los Angeles police chief William Bratton to assess the team's security policies in the wake of a San Francisco Giants fan being severely beaten in the stadium's parking lot after the season opener.
The team says Bratton will help develop a security blueprint that extends to both Dodger Stadium and its parking lots.
Bratton left as LAPD chief in October 2009 to take a job with Kroll, a security consulting firm based in New York. He says he'll take a look at security procedures and make recommendations based on the findings.
Giants fan Bryan Stow remains hospitalized in critical condition after being beaten by two men wearing Dodgers clothing on March 31. A $100,000 reward is being offered for help in identifying the assailants.
