Buffalo Police Chief Jason Carder updated the city council on a number of items at the last council meeting in July.

Officer Todd Morrison completed training at the Police Academy in Douglas last month and continued training through the end of July in preparation for patrol duty on his own beginning this week.

Carder said a Homeland Security Grant he applied for earlier this year to purchase video cameras has been approved but the county was not able to issue a check for their portion of the local match for the grant. The county offered to waive $36,146.98 of the city's annual payment toward the loan on the new criminal justice center to cover the county's portion of the local match on the grant, which the council agreed to.

Councilman Russ Humphrey asked if police were enforcing the city's watering rules this summer, as he has heard complaints from citizens of people in violation of the city's watering policy.

The police department will also be checking on Recreational Vehicles being parked on city streets for extended periods of time, according to Carder.
