Former New York City Police Commissioner Ray Kelly has been picked up by ABC News as consultant on law enforcement matters for all platforms.

"As the longest serving Police Commissioner of the City of New York, Ray Kelly brings 50 years of public service and law and order experience to ABC News," wrote ABC News President Ben Sherwood Friday in a note to the network's news division.

"As Police Commissioner of the City of New York, Kelly helped transform the safety and security of the city after 9/11," he added.

"He successfully reduced the city's violent crime rate by 40 percent and also established the first counterterrorism bureau of any city police department in the U.S."

Kelly left his post at the end of 2013 after serving as New York City's police commissioner for 12 years.

He is credited with overseeing a transformative era for the police department by advocating for the controversial stop-and-frisk tactic and turning the department into what some experts call the most tech-savvy in the nation.

Under his leadership, crime in New York City dropped by a third, which is double the national average.
