“The commitment and dedication the men and women in the Niagara Falls Police Department have to protecting our neighbors is second-to-none. I’d especially like to recognize the officers in the department’s Narcotics Intelligence Division. They work tirelessly and around-the-clock to rid our streets of guns and drugs, and to keep them out of the hands of people with a violent, criminal history who force our neighbors to live in fear for their safety.”
“I commend the Niagara Falls Police Department and Chief Faso for their efforts to make our city safer. Their work every day – and especially in cases like this – is an excellent reflection of our dedication to increase safety and security on City streets."
