With New York squarely in the crosshairs of al-Qaeda and other terrorist organizations, the city’s police department (NYPD) has been forced into a counterrorism mindset usually only found in the world’s top militaries and intelligence organizations. Fortunately, for the last decade, the NYPD has been led by 43-year NYPD veteran Commissioner Raymond Kelly, who possibly has the best international credentials of any law enforcement official in the country. What are some of the biggest challenges that Kelly and the NYPD have faced in the post-9/11 era? How do you keep tens of millions of people safe while preserving their right to privacy?

Kelly has been commissioner of the NYPD since 2002 and was also commissioner from 1992 to 1994. He is the first person to hold the post for two non-consecutive tenures and he has held 25 different NYPD commands during his tenure. Kelly has also held the positions of under secretary for enforcement at the United States Department of the Treasury, vice president for the Americas of Interpol, commissioner of the U.S. Customs Service, and senior managing director for corporate security at Bear Stearns.  

Speaker: Raymond Kelly
