Buffalo Rising has posted on the increase (walking/biking) police presence in some Buffalo areas.
"There is no comparison when it comes to having a police officer in the community rather than driving through the community."
I've posted on it here before. With the uptick in comments about the Genessee St. area I thought I would throw it out here again. Nothing would have a greater impact in this area then officers taking a portion of their shift to walk a few blocks. Cars are great for being reactionary to an event but nothing will beat walking to really notice what is going on and getting ahead of events. 3mph is much better for taking in details than 30mph. It is also a much better way to interact with the law abiding demographic than set-ups at the Fashion Outlets in the Falls.
