We extend our deepest sympathies to the family of Officer Sean Godios. He was a dedicated member of the Buffalo Police Department who served his community with honor for more than six years.

This past year has been challenging for all of us, especially the men and women of the Buffalo Police Department. During this time of immense grief, we hope the community can come together to honor this fallen hero and the men and women who keep us safe.

With bail reform, our officers are continuing to arrest repeat offenders who have been released from custody almost immediately after conducting a crime. For example, one person was arrested 11 times (including twice in one day on two separate occasions) over a three-month span for stealing vehicles last year. Stealing vehicles is a felony offense.

Our canine unit is comprised of 7 K-9 handler teams and the first ever female lieutenant is the commander of the K-9 unit. All 7 teams are dual purpose, which means they can all do handler protection, article searches and tracking. The only exception is that when it comes to odor, three of our teams are bomb and four teams are narcotics. They play an imperative part of tracking and keeping our buildings safe.
