New York City Police Commissioner William Bratton said on Monday that his tenure will soon end, CBS News reports.

“I do not intend to stay into a second term,” if Mayor Bill de Blasio is reelected, Bratton said at a news conference.

CBS said Bratton, 68, discussed pursuing new challenges after 2017, when de Blasio’s term ends, but offered no specific timetable.

“When I find the right time, that’s when there’ll be a consultation with the mayor,” the commissioner stated. “I’m not worried about getting kicked out of the place, fortunately.”

De Blasio, who sat next to Bratton at the news conference, said he wants his police commissioner to remain on the job through the end of his term in office.

Bratton came up through the ranks, starting as a patrolman in Boston and climbing to the top positions at police departments in Boston, Los Angeles, and New York. In fact, this is Bratton’s second time as New York City Police Commissioner, serving previously under Mayor Rudolph Giuliani.

De Blasio came into office with a promise to communities of color to reform the controversial stop-and-frisk tactic. He hired Bratton to oversee his reforms and to signal a balanced approach to policing, according to CBS.

Bratton has often found himself in the middle between the mayor and rank-and-file police officers. After the slaying of Officers Wenjian Liu and Rafael Ramos in 2014, Bratton sent a memo warning his officers not to disrespect de Blasio. Still, dozens of officers turned their backs on the mayor during his remarks at Officer Liu’s funeral.
