Buffalo Council Hears Monthly Police Report

Buffalo Council Hears Monthly Police Report

The Buffalo City Council heard the latest report from Police Chief Jason Carder concerning incidents for the month of February.

Carder said there were 998 incidents in the month and dispatch handled just over 3,100 hone calls.

There were no animal calls responded to in the county.

One error in his report he brought to the attention of the council was that there were two suicide attempts during the month when there were actually four attempts.
One incident was difficult in particular, he said, because a gun needed to be wrestled away from one individual that was attempting to use it on them self.

Tobacco Compliance Checks were also performed recently and he tells us how they went.

Carder said the recent church and government buildings tours went well.

Councilman Russ Humphrey asked questions about items in his budget report, the first concerning 71 rabies shots for $710. Carder explained that was the money collected from the recent rabies clinic that must be listed as a line item in his budget. The money goes back into the city's general fund.

The second question was about ammunition purchased with money set aside for the deer mitigation program.
Carder explained he has two officers he needs to send for firearms training and certification and the budget for ammunition was already used.
The training requires a special ammunition and City Clerk Julie Silbernagel's suggestion was to purchase the ammunition with deer mitigation funds that were unused this year.

Finally, Carder asked if the council wanted him to re-apply for deer mitigation permits with the Wyoming Game and Fish Department for the coming year, and they approved him doing so.
