New York City Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly will speak about his eleven-year tenure as the head of the NYPD, and the strategies that have enabled the New York City Police Department to drive crime down by more than 30% since 2001 while defending New York from another terrorist attack. Kelly will deliver the Taubman Center for Public Policy's Noah Krieger '93 Memorial Lecture.
Commissioner Kelly created the first counterterrorism bureau of any municipal police department in the country. He also established a new global intelligence program and stationed New York City detectives in eleven foreign cities. And he created the Real Time Crime Center, a state-of-the-art facility that uses data mining to search millions of computer records and put investigative leads into the hands of detectives in the field.
This lecture is free and open to the public.
