Bratton stepped down as police chief to work for Virginia-based Altegrity Inc. The company is launching a global investigations firm, Altegrity Risk International, of which Bratton is chairman, according to The Times' Stuart Pfeifer:

Bratton has tapped former L.A. City Councilman Jack Weiss to run the company's Los Angeles office and former Deputy Police Chief Michael Berkow as president of its security consulting unit. Bratton retired from the Los Angeles Police Department in October after seven years to work for Altegrity, which had more than $900 million in revenue last year and is headed by Mike Cherkasky, former chief executive of the Kroll Group.
