JPMorgan said in for cop slot

Security Guard

NYPD Commissioner Ray Kelly, unwanted by Mayor-elect Bill de Blasio, is in the running for a top security job at JPMorgan Chase, sources at the financial giant told The New York Post.

The newspaper reports that 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'.

Sources familiar with the situation said Kelly’s position at JPMorgan could include a seven-figure salary and bonuses.

The firm’s senior security officer, Thomas Higgins, left about a month ago and has not been replaced.

Kelly has a great rapport with JPMorgan’s senior leaders, in particular Chief Executive Jamie Dimon.
