Mr. Cohen, who is well known to most New Yorkers, is one of the world’s leading authorities on intelligence analysis and operations, with expertise developed over a nearly five-decade career with the Central Intelligence Agency [CIA] as well as with the world’s largest metropolitan law enforcement organization, the City of New York Police Department (NYPD).
Mr. Cohen served for 12 years as the NYPD Deputy Commissioner for Intelligence, a position established in the wake of the 9/11 attacks.

Prior to that, he was the CIA’s Associate Director of Intelligence, and oversaw all CIA economic, political and military analysis and reporting provided to the President and the nation's national security leadership.
