Seattle police chief named as US drug czar

Vice President Joe Biden says Seattle police chief Gil Kerlikowske, the man President Barack Obama plans to nominate as U.S. drug czar, will bring to the job a lifetime of experience working on drug policy.
Kerlikowske is a 36-year law enforcement veteran and has been Seattle's top police officer for nearly nine years. He has been credited with cutting crime rates to record lows.
Biden introduced Kerlikowske at a White House ceremony.
Before joining the Seattle force, Kerlikowske held top police positions in the states of Florida and New York. He then served in the Clinton administration as deputy director of the Justice Department office that promotes community policing.
