    STATEMENT FROM JOHN EVANS, PRESIDENT,

    BUFFALO POLICE BENEVOLENT ASSOCIATION

     

    BUFFALO, NY  As the investigation continues into the details of today’s incident on Genesee Street, we believe our officers followed Departmental protocols and New York law in responding to an individual who attacked a Buffalo Police Officer with a baseball bat.  The officer was struck repeatedly and was taken to Erie County Medical Center for treatment. 

    Officers on the scene, including a member from the Crisis Intervention Team (CIT), pleaded with the individual to drop the bat. Despite these efforts the individual ultimately attacked the officer who was injured.

    The Buffalo Police Benevolent Association has been actively communicating with City officials, members of the Common Council and police administrators to improve police interactions with people with mental health issues.  

    This type of interaction is extremely dangerous and can quickly turn into a life or death situation.  Due to these concernsthe PBA is advocating a collaborative process to enhance training and refine protocols to properly address this public health and safety issue.
