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
Department and the FBI's Safe Streets Task Force.
