C. O. "Brad" Bradford has dedicated his career to public safety and criminal justice. Mr. Bradford served twenty-four years with the Houston, Texas Police Department, including seven years as Chief of Police. As Chief of the fourth largest city in the United States, he provided leadership in the areas of public safety and crime prevention, as well as security for two major airport facilities, and a local jail that processed over 100,000 prisoners each year.
Chief Bradford holds a criminal justice degree, public administration degree, and a law degree. Also, he is a graduate of several leadership, supervisory and management programs, including the Program for State and Local Government Executives at Harvard University's John F.

He has combined his legal training as an attorney and police experience to work with government officials and business leaders in developing crime prevention strategies and promoting safe environments in diverse communities.

Chief Bradford was part of the leadership team that implemented community policing strategies in Houston, Texas.
