Frank Lazarro Rizzo (October 23, 1920July 16, 1991) was an Italian American noted for his contributions to the fields of law enforcement and politics in the United States. He began his career as a patrolman with the Philadelphia Police Department (PPD) in 1943, and rose through the ranks of the police department to eventually become Philadelphia Police Commissioner in 1967. Rizzo retired as Police Commissioner, and campaigned for Mayor of Philadelphia in 1971, and was elected mayor in November. He was elected to a second term in November 1975. A term limit provision prevented Rizzo from running for a third consecutive term in 1979. Rizzo campaigned unsuccessfully for mayor in 1983 and 1987, and then hosted a radio talk show in 1988. He was campaigning for mayor, and had won the the Republican primary election, when he died in July 1991.[1]
