MIDTOWN — Police Commissioner Ray Kelly acknowledged Monday that there's a investigation into alleged ticket-fixing at the NYPD.

A DNAinfo column revealed Monday that 10 cops face arrest and hundreds of others could be disciplined after the probe, which is based on thousands of hours of recorded conversations where officers allegedly discussed making traffic violations disappear for family and friends.

Speaking at a press conference Monday morning, Kelly said he couldn't comment on an ongoing investigation, but he did say that the NYPD expects officers not to give special favors.

"We expect officers to enforce the law objectively," Kelly said. "They’re [police officers] charged under the law to enforce the regulation of the city of the department."

A grand jury in the Bronx is looking over evidence in the citywide probe, source told DNAinfo. Some police officers are cooperating with the investigation.
