Lee Brown Sworn In as New ONDCP Chief


July 1993

Former police chief Lee Brown was sworn in as head of the Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP) June 21 (No byline, "Senate Confirms Lee Brown As Drug Director," Drug Enforcement Report, 6/23/93, p. 4).

ONDCP is undergoing drastic downsizing, with the staff to be reduced from 146 people to 25 people by the end of September. Brown was police chief of Atlanta, Houston, and New York City, and is known as an advocate of community policing.
