           Erie County Legislature Chairperson Betty Jean Grant (D-Buffalo), left, and County Legislator Timothy R. Hogues (D-Buffalo), chairman of the Public Safety Committee, presented a proclamation to Buffalo Police Deputy Commissioner Charles Tomaszewski in honor of National Peace Officers Memorial Day and National Police Week Wednesday, May 15.

           “The vital, and sometimes volatile, work of police officers can, in an instant, turn a routine day into the last day of their lives. Police officers live with this knowledge when they report to work, yet they do so with an unbridled willingness to put their lives on the line to protect us,” Chairperson Grant said. “Our entire community owes a profound debt of gratitude to every individual who has worn the badge of police officer, as well as the families of police officers, whose support is essential to the ability of police officers to focus on their professional responsibilities.”
