Police Commissioner Ray Kelly said he's disappointed with the Justice Department's stance on a possible court monitor of the New York City Police Department.

A federal judge will decide if the department's stop-and-frisk practices are unconstitutional.

The Justice Department said it would be in favor of having a monitor if the the judge rules against the NYPD.

Kelly said police have made historic reductions in crime, and top officials should be consulted on any reforms.

"We're doing something right here, it's working here in New York City, yet people want to tinker with it, want to change what we're doing," Kelly said. "We're open to suggestions and recommendations, but they simply didn't give us the opportunity."

Mayor Michael Bloomberg also expressed his strong disagreement with the Justice Department.
