BUFFALO, N.Y. — A Buffalo Police spokesperson has confirmed to 2 On Your Side that a police captain, who is at the center of a lawsuit, has been suspended.
Captain Amber Beyer is the head of the department's Behavioral Health Team. She is named in a federal lawsuit that was filed less than two weeks ago by two current officers and a civilian.
The lawsuit alleges that Captain Beyer violated their civil rights through racist rants they claim she made in front of her unit.
Our partners at Investigative Post first obtained the documents, showing that the two officers and civilians are suing the city, the Buffalo Police Department, and Captain Amber Beyer.
2 On Your Side confirmed the Commissioner suspended Beyer, who remains the subject of an internal affairs investigation.
