WASHINGTON (AP) — New York Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly confirms that a CIA officer is working out of police headquarters but says the spy agency's role at the department is an advisory one.

Kelly was responding Thursday in New York to questions about the NYPD's unprecedented relationship with the Central Intelligence Agency since the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks against the U.S.

An Associated Press investigation revealed that the NYPD, with help from the CIA, has become one of the most aggressive domestic intelligence agencies.

Kelly says the CIA trains NYPD officials and provides information about what is going on overseas. The CIA says it is not involved in domestic spying and says the collaboration is exactly what Americans want.
