Thousands sign up for Buffalo Police exam

Posted at 8:44 PM, May 17, 2016

If this year's Buffalo Police exam registration is any indication, more people are wanting to become police officers than in the past few years.

Buffalo Mayor Byron Brown announced that almost 2,500 people applied to take the police exam in hopes of becoming the city's newest officers.

That's more people than the number of people who signed up to take the last test in 2011.  

Minorities made up more than half of the people who registered this year.
