From the Niagara County Sheriff’s Office:
Acting Niagara County Sheriff Michael J. Filicetti announced law enforcement is remaining vigilant and fluid during these times.
After consulting with our law enforcement partners throughout the county, the decision has been made to process low-priority calls for service via telephone. In an effort to adhere to the social distancing recommendations, this will allow our deputies to still take your complaint, but not have to make face-to-face contact with the complainant. If follow-up items are needed with the complainant, we will make arrangements for contact at a later time.
We still encourage the public to contact our communications center to report incidents; we will just be evaluating the need for a deputy to respond. Our response to priority or emergency calls will remain unaffected.
We appreciate your understanding as we continue to balance the safety of our deputies and the community.
