Who will be Nassau County's next top cop?

With Nassau County's top cop recently out, the speculation about who will be in the position next has been rampant.

Recently, reports had surfaced that NYPD Commissioner Ray Kelly would assume the position, although those reports have since been shot down.

Kelly would have been a very good choice for the position, though, since he has a strong record of being an effective leader, who has proven himself capable of being tough on crime. During his time as police commissioner, New York City has seen a significant drop in violent crimes, which fell to their lowest rates in years.

About a month ago, the previous Nassau County police commissioner Thomas Dale stepped down from the position. Dale had been reportedly involved in a court case that held political overtones, which lead to his eventual resignation.

While it remains to be seen who will assume the position, perhaps County Executive Edward Mangano should consider bringing in someone who is not from Nassau County. Someone with a strong disciplinary record in law enforcement is definitely necessary for this often-difficult position.
