This case of Covid19 is one of few in the department

“Currently, I’m happy to say, only three officers currently out that have tested positive for the disease. Since the beginning of this, we’ve had over 66 officers who have been able to return to duty,” said Captain Jeff Rinaldo Buffalo Police Department.

The department has undergone several changes due to the coronavirus, including the use of masks and sanitizing police cars.

“So thankfully, a lot of the precautions and steps we put in place have been paying off pretty good for us,” he said. “Everything from sanitizing our police vehicles, to doing deep cleaning of our police station houses, acquiring more PPE equipment as well cleaning solutions and supplies and wipes and things of that nature.”
