Although Bratton is a proponent of the police tactic known as stop and frisk, which de Blasio says was used too much during the Bloomberg years, both men have pledged to better explain the use of the tactic and de Blasio has vowed to drop the Bloomberg administration’s objections to a pair of watchdogs - both an independent general and a federal monitor - who have been tasked with overseeing the NYPD.
