When William Bratton was sworn in as New York City's police commissioner in 1994 at the age of 47, he made what many considered an unrealistically bold promise: The NYPD would fight crime in every borough—and win.

 Hewlett-Parkin Family History: Bratton Fleming
Bratton Fleming was the village that my paternal grandmother, Melia Ann Parkin, came from, where apparently she lived with her father John Parkin and her mother Anne till she was married at the age of about eighteen, after she had met and fallen in love with a tailor named William George Hewlett.
Bratton Fleming came to live in my mind through sayings in the Devon dialect that my father passed on to me, and stories about villagers, like the woman who had the best-tasting candles in the village (presumably tallow candles).
A most suitable guide she was, for Olive had written her own memories of her grandparents’ Bratton Fleming and of stories her grandmother (Ann Parkin) had told her of times even before their days.
