In his State of the State address Wednesday, Governor Andrew Cuomo said that former police Commissioner Ray Kelly isn't quite done with New York.
Cuomo announced Kelly's new role as a special adviser to the development of a new state college with a focus on homeland security and emergency preparedness.
The governor said that while some colleges offer classes on those subjects, this school would be unique.
"We're going to establish the nation's first college dedicated solely to emergency preparedness and homeland security because I believe this is a field that's only to grow," Cuomo said. "Unfortunately, it's only going to get worse, and we want this college right here in the state of New York."
Although he's criticized Kelly in the past and chose not to keep him on as the head of the New York City Police Department, Mayor Bill de Blasio said that Kelly is a great choice for the position.
