The Police Advisory Board (PAB) wants residents to attend a community forum at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 5. The forum will be held at the Frank E. Merriweather Library, located at 1324 Jefferson Ave. in Buffalo. Attendees will have an opportunity to learn more about the proposed Buffalo Police Department body camera policy, make suggestions and ask questions.
“Body cams will be a major change in how the Buffalo Police do their work,” says the PAB Co-Chair Jonathan Manes. “We want to hear from residents about their concerns, fears and suggestions about the body cams, so that we can best advocate on their behalf with the Buffalo Police Department.”
