Local police departments have the knowledge but lack the resources for 
cybersecurity-related police efforts, according to former Los Angeles 
Police Department Chief Bill Bratton.

Speaking today after his keynote address at the FOSE 2010 trade show in 
Washington, Bratton said local police departments have been behind the 
curve for most of their history in tackling computer-related crime and 
cybersecurity.

Bratton, who also served as commissioner of the New York City Police 
Department, also said that computer security is an unmet challenge for 
police departments that is unlikely to be addressed in significant way 
because of funding, prioritization, resources and access to systems.

He added that the situation is frustrating for police chiefs. .We know 
how to do it; we know how to coordinate it," he said. "It.s a resource 
issue."

Bratton is now chairman of Altegrity Risk International. He also 
previously served as chief of the New York City Transit Police and as 
Boston Police Department commissioner.
