New York Police Commissioner Ray Kelly might have an additional job under the administration of Gov.-elect Andrew Cuomo.

Cuomo has tapped Kelly to serve on his public safety transition committee, a source close to the incoming governor told the New York Daily News.

The committee - which will also include former Brooklyn U.S. Attorney Zachary Carter - will recruit and recommend people for administration posts that have public safety and law enforcement responsibilities, including counterterrorism, the News reports.

Cuomo could make the announcement as early as today, the newspaper said.

Kelly was appointed Police Commissioner by Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg. Commissioner Kelly was formerly Senior Managing Director, Global Corporate Security, at Bear, Stearns & Co. Inc. Before that, he served as Commissioner of the U.S. Customs Service, where he managed the agency's 20,000 employees and $20 billion in annual revenue.

Cuomo's transition team is led by Lt. Gov.-elect Robert Duffy.
