Howard Safir

From 1996 to 2000 the New York City Police Department under Commissioner Howard Safir reduced the rate of major crimes in New York City by 38% and today the city is, per capita, the safest in America with population over 1 million. Safir was appointed commissioner after a career in law enforcement that started in 1965 with the New York office of the Federal Bureau of Narcotics, now the Drug Enforcement Agency. During the 1980s he was chief of the Witness Security Division of the DEA and associate director of U. S. Marshals. He is now a partner in the New York-based security consulting firm, Safir Rosetti.
