Buffalo Council Hears Report From BPD For August

Buffalo Police Sergeant Garth Nicholas, standing in for Chief Jason Carder, gave the monthly report for August to the Buffalo City Council at their meeting Tuesday.

Nicholas said their were 1,522 incidents reported in the city during the month, and dispatch handled 4,996 total phone calls during the month.

The largest number of incidents in the city during the month were 293 traffic stops, and Nicholas explained why there were so many in one
month.

City ACO Karen Kimutis responded to seven animal control calls in the county, for which the city will charge the county $350. Additionally she responded to 36 within the city.

Nicholas said the first week of school went well with no major incidents or accidents to report.

The new stop signs erected at South Burritt and Conrad Streets have been a huge asset in handling the additional traffic from the new school in that area, he said.
