The Police Commissioner might get a job at JP Morgan.

Kelly’s potential position with JPMorgan Chase would make him responsible for security at the giant financial firm, with emphasis on cyber-security, people familiar with the ongoing talks said. Kelly’s new job could come with a seven-figure package of 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. Kelly, who was also commissioner during 1992-1994, has experience in the banking world since he was the managing director for corporate secueity at Bear Stearns during 2000-2001.
