In Wake Of Criticism, Dodgers Hire Bill Bratton To Review Stadium Security
Following last week's brutal parking lot beating, the Dodgers have hired former LAPD Chief William Bratton to advise them on security.
That's a sharp reversal from Saturday, when Frank McCourt said he was satisfied that Dodger Stadium was already as safe as it could be.
Since retiring from the LAPD, Bratton has been chairman of Kroll, which bills itself as "the world's leading risk consulting company."
Kroll also handles investigations for companies involved in high-stakes litigation, so watch out Jamie McCourt...

In a statement, Frank McCourt said that Bratton will oversee a "top-to-bottom review" of stadium security procedures.

Meanwhile, Bryan Stow, 42, remains in critical condition with a severe skull fracture.
