NYPD Commissioner Ray Kelly To Hit The Speaking Circuit


Outgoing New York City Police Department Commissioner Ray Kelly will be going on the speaker’s circuit after he leaves his post at the end of the month. 

The Wall Street Journal reported that the Greater Talent Network announced on Monday it had signed a deal to represent Kelly. The deal begins Jan. 1. Greater Talent Network also represents ex-Federal Bureau of Investigation Director Louis Freeh, and former National Security Adviser Tom Donilon.

Mayor-elect Bill de Blasio campaigned in part on replacing Kelly. De Blasio, who takes office Jan. 1, announced his decision to replace Kelly with former NYPD Commissioner Bill Bratton earlier this month.
