cariol's law

Buffalo Common Council members are working on a plan that would have the police department hire full-time mental health professional to aid officers on crisis calls. But they're not rushing to pass a resolution. In the meantime, it appeared following Tuesday's Council Legislation Committee meeting that the proposed police reform bill known as Cariol's Law might be brought to a vote the following week.
