An account has been set up by the Buffalo PBA for anyone wishing to donate to the Lehner Family at the Buffalo Police Federal Credit Union .  Checks can be sent to the PBA Office at 74 Franklin St, Buffalo 14202 and made payable to “Buffalo PBA” with Craig Lehner’s name in the memo.





Every 20 years the voters of New York State are faced with a ballot question that can has the potential to drastically change their way of life.  Most citizens do not know that this year there will be a referendum on the ballot.  Very few people even understand the impact of their vote.

On November 7, 2017 voters will be asked, “Should a convention be convened to revise and amend the New York State Constitution”.

All public sector employees and those that have retired from such employment should vote NO to this question!

If this convention is held public employee pensions are at risk.  The right to organize as a union and to collectively bargain contracts can be stripped away from public sector employees. 

If this convention is convened it will cost tax payers at least 330 million dollars.  A convention could strip the powers of our legislature and create an imbalance of political power. 

It is critically important that we all do our part to educate ourselves, our families and, our friends on this issue.  There is a multitude of heavily funded advocates that are pushing an agenda calling for this convention.  These groups want to weaken worker’s rights and create a “Right to Work” state.  Our best chances to maintain our way of life is to rally all past and present public sector employees to vote NO

The PBA has magnetic bumper stickers stating our position on this ballot question.  If you have one, put it on your car.  If you need one stop down to our office and pick one up.

These are just some of mandates by which the PBA operates.  The PBA operates almost entirely for the benefit of its membership. 

  1. To negotiate collectively with the City of Buffalo on behalf of the Police Officers employed by the City of Buffalo.

  2. To promote greater acknowledgement from the public of Buffalo Police Officers as members of their profession.

  3. To serve as a conduit for exchanging information amongst the members of the association on matters of common interest.

  4. To give aid and assistance to Police Officers and Police Associations wherever possible.

The PBA does not comment to the media on personnel issues, especially those that are under investigation by the Buffalo Police Internal Affairs Bureau, the Erie County District Attorney’s Office or any federal investigative agency.   

The Executive Staff of the PBA is comprised of active duty Police Officers and we firmly believe in the presumption of innocence; which is the corner stone of this country’s criminal justice system.  As such, it would not be appropriate for the PBA to comment on any matter where one of its members might be accused of some wrong doing.
