Probation Is Fighting to End Gun Violence

The Erie County Probation Department is sending a message that Black lives matter and that gun violence must end. As part of the Gun Involved Violence Elimination (GIVE) program, two veteran probation officers are making home visits to identified gang members and their families.

Weapons Confiscated from Probationer's Home

On Friday, Probation Officers Phillips and Getter made a home call regarding a volatile offender in suspected possession of guns/weapons. Upon search of the offender’s address, an AK-47 & a double-barrel shotgun were discovered, along with 3 large boxes of ammunition. Cheektowaga Police responded to the scene, confiscated the guns and charged the offender with criminal contempt. Great job PO Phillips & PO Getter in keeping the community safe. On behalf of all, thank you!
