THE MISSION OF THE BUFFALO POLICE BENEVOLENT ASSOCIATION
These are just some of mandates by which the PBA operates. The PBA operates almost entirely for the benefit of its membership.
To negotiate collectively with the City of Buffalo on behalf of the Police Officers employed by the City of Buffalo.
To promote greater acknowledgement from the public of Buffalo Police Officers as members of their profession.
To serve as a conduit for exchanging information amongst the members of the association on matters of common interest.
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.
