With the election of Bill de Blasio, current police commissioner Ray Kelly is out but not down. According to the New York Post, Ray Kelly will head back to the banking world to serve as the head of security for JP Morgan Chase with a seven figure base salary plus bonuses.
The position would include overseeing the firm’s cyber-security, according to people familiar with the negotiations.
When asked for comment about Kelly’s potential career move, his personal attorney said in a statement, “The Police Commissioner has not accepted any post governmental offers. … Because of city [Conflict of Interest Board] rules, he has not even had discussions with, much less accepted any offer from anyone who does business with the city and will not do so until he leaves office.”
