NYPD: CIA Officer to Leave Department in April

When he leaves, he will have worked in collaboration with the NYPD for nine months


Friday, January 27, 2012

NEW YORK (AP) — New York Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly says the CIA officer working as an assistant to the department's top intelligence officer will leave in April after nine months.

The Associated Press reported Thursday that the officer's assignment was being cut short. On Friday, Kelly said the department was notified in November of when the officer would leave.

The U.S. inspector general earlier cleared the CIA of any wrongdoing in its relationship with the NYPD but criticized how the collaboration was established.

The investigation came after AP articles showed the NYPD collaborated with the CIA to set up operations that put scrutinized Muslim communities.
