A curfew for the city of Buffalo remains in place through at least Sunday.

ERIE COUNTY, N.Y. — The Town of Cheektowaga has lifted their curfew for Wednesday night. 

Police will have added patrols throughout the town. 

A curfew for the city of Buffalo remains in place through at least Sunday.

Buffalo Mayor Byron Brown also issued a curfew for the City of Buffalo from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m. through Sunday to deal with the unrest from protests.

“Children in our community of all backgrounds are scared. They’re frightened by what’s happening right now,” Brown said Tuesday.

Everyone except essential workers need to be off the streets during the curfew. Essential workers are being advised to carry their work badge or other I.D. to identify themselves if they are stopped by law enforcement.

Erie County Executive Mark Poloncarz did not implement a curfew for Erie County Wednesday night. However, the county executive says that decision may be reevaluated if there is violence in the streets outside the areas under curfew.
