New community dispute resolution program approved by Erie County DA

Erie County

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — Erie County District Attorney John Flynn approved the launch of a new community dispute resolution program in Buffalo City Court.

The new program is an alternative to criminal proceedings to solve issues between people or groups.

The goal is to get conversation going, reach common ground, and get a peaceful resolution.

This will save money by keeping smaller problems out of the court system.
