In 2018, the Buffalo Common Council created the Police Advisory Board with the goal of increasing transparency and accountability surrounding the oversight of the police.

The all-volunteer Advisory Board is looking for residents of the City, who have a deep concern about the well being of its citizens and want to make a difference.

We consult with Buffalo residents and advocate on their behalf by making recommendations to the Common Council and Buffalo Police Department about how policing and community-police relationships can be improved.

I am a huge advocate for people participating in their government. The only way the power who have been elected to public office know what we want is if we get involved and make sure our needs and wants are known. So people here is your chance. Don't just talk about it, be about it.
