About Us

The Buffalo City Charter, in 1927, recognized the Buffalo Special Police Officers. Since that time, this volunteer group of concerned citizens has dedicated their own time and resources to helping keep Buffalo a safe place. Buffalo Special Officers pay for their own training and equipment and work at the pleasure and direction of the Buffalo Police Commissioner.
