According to two people with knowledge of Mr. de Blasio’s decision, the New York Mayor-elect was expected on Thursday morning to name William J. Bratton to lead the New York Police Department. The move will return Mr. Bratton to the helm of the nation’s largest force at a time of historically low crime rates and a deepening rift between officers and the public. Now, Mr. Bratton returns to a city where crime has continued to fall and where there is less acceptance of some of the most aggressive and confrontational policing tactics.
