BUFFALO, N.Y. — Investigative Post reported in August that the Buffalo Police Department was woefully short of working patrol cars.

The city’s failure to purchase new cars regularly, deferred maintenance and inadequate staffing at the department’s garage had led to a situation the Police Benevolent Association president John Evans described as “dire.” Among the resulting problems: officers without access to vehicles to respond to 911 calls in a timely fashion.

Almost six months later, Buffalo’s patrol officers are still waiting for relief.
