NEW YORK (AP) — The former New York City police commissioner who presided over a dramatic drop in crime rates during a long and sometimes controversial tenure as head of the country’s largest force has a book deal.

Hachette Books tells The Associated Press that Raymond W. Kelly is working on a memoir that will come out in the Fall 2015. The book is currently untitled.

Hachette said Sunday Kelly will cover his long background in law enforcement and offer advice on leadership. He will discuss his relationship with former Mayor Michael Bloomberg and other government officials and will also address criticisms he has faced, including for the department’s “stop-and-frisk” policy.
