Buffalo Police are reversing their policy of allowing its officers to wear only a badge number instead of their name on their uniforms and overcoats.
The change was announced during a meeting Monday of the Buffalo Police Oversight Committee and comes at the directive of Police Commissioner Byron Lockwood.
Following a summer of unrest, Mayor Byron Brown said last September officers could just wear a badge number as a way to cut down on attempts by members of the public to inappropriately contact officers.
