Buffalo Waterfront Crime Update

August 20, 2008

I decided to contact the Buffalo News about the Buffalo Waterfront Crime Wave. Even if they did nothing, I would feel better that I tried to do something to make my fellow Buffaloians aware of the risk of leaving valuables visable at the new greenway trail.

Yesterday, I was pleasantly surprised to see an article in the Buffalo News about the break-ins. Of course, it could be co-incidence that a Buffalo News reporter decided that these crimes were worth writing about.

Even more surprising was yet another article in today’s (Wednesday) Buffalo News about another “smash and grab” on Fuhrmann.

I’m not sure what cops could do other than stationing cops in each parking lot and increasing patrols along Fuhrmann to stop this from happening.

I think that signs advising greenway users not to leave valuables in sight would be a good idea.
