BUFFALO, N.Y. — Out of concern for officer safety, the Buffalo Police Department made a change to its dress code policy — officers are no longer required to wear their name on their badge.
Officers will still have to wear their badge number as part of the changes implemented about a week ago, WKBW reported.
The police union had been working on the changes since August.
Critics oppose the move as an effort to create less transparency.
