LEGISLATIVE RESOLUTION honoring U.S. Attorney William J. Hochul Jr., The
Buffalo Police Department and the FBI's Safe Streets Task Force for
their courageous efforts to take back our Buffalo City Streets

WHEREAS, The quality of life in the communities of the State of New York
is largely reflective of the commitment and dedication demonstrated by
members of the agencies which serve to protect, preserve, and maintain
public order; and
WHEREAS, It is the sense of this Legislative Body to recognize and
honor agencies, organizations, and individuals dedicated to the care and
welfare of the citizens of their communities and this great Empire
State; and
WHEREAS, Attendant to such concern and fully in accord with its long-
standing traditions, it is the intent of this Legislative Body to
acknowledge and pay tribute to U.S. Attorney William J. Hochul Jr., The
Buffalo Police Department and the FBI's Safe Streets Task Force for
their courageous efforts to take back the Buffalo City Streets, noting
that since 2010, 160 Buffalo gang members have been put behind bars; and
WHEREAS, Working with a sense of urgency, U.S. Attorney William J.
Hochul Jr., The Buffalo Police Department and the FBI's Safe Streets
Task Force have successfully been working to take down two of the larg-
est and most dangerous gangs in the City of Buffalo, the LRGP Crew and
the Bailey Boys; and
WHEREAS, The Anti-Gang Coalition comprised of U.S. Attorney William J.
Hochul Jr., The Buffalo Police Department and the FBI's Safe Streets
Task Force has also worked to significantly reduce the presence of the
Seventh and Tenth street gangs, whose bitter rivalry with one another
made many neighborhoods on Buffalo's West Side unsafe; and
WHEREAS, The Anti-Gang Coalition team has solved twenty-one homicides
involving gangs since 2010 and there are another ten to fifteen murders
which have a high probability of being solved; and
WHEREAS, In all, 160 Buffalo gang members have been put behind bars
over the past three years; and
WHEREAS, The Anti-Gang Coalition team truly deserves praise for
aggressively taking on Buffalo's gangs; their courage and dedication are
helping to make Buffalo's neighborhoods safe for generations to come;
now, therefore, be it
RESOLVED, That this Legislative Body pause in its deliberations to
honor U.S. Attorney William J. Hochul Jr., The Buffalo Police Department
and the FBI's Safe Streets Task Force for their courageous efforts to
take back our Buffalo City Streets; and be it further
RESOLVED, That copies of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be tran-
smitted to U.S. Attorney William J. Hochul Jr., The Buffalo Police
