The city's police department on Monday received a first-of-its-kind award from the State Department.

Police Commissioner Ray Kelly traveled to Washington to receive the Secretary of State's Excellence in Criminal Justice Assistance Award, for the department's work in Haiti.

Since the 2010 earthquake that destroyed parts of Haiti, dozens of Creole-speaking officers from the city have been deployed to help Haiti's police force with investigative and anti-kidnapping strategies.

It's part of a collaboration between the NYPD and the State Department to improve criminal justice systems around the world.

Commissioner Kelly also has a history with Haiti.

He led a police monitoring program there for two years in the 90's.
