"The policy is, when it comes to the uniform section of the manual procedures, that you must wear your name tag and that it must be displayed on your outermost garment," said Gramaglia. "It was brought to our attention (Tuesday) that some officers had name tags that were either covered up or obscured in some way, but that was addressed immediately through their respective chiefs."
Gramaglia says it's a minor policy violation, and at this time, none of the officers involved in Tuesday night's incident have been disciplined, as the investigation will take a little time.
"We have a manual of procedure for our police officers," said Brown. "We expect our police officers to follow the procedure of the Buffalo Police Department. They knew what that procedure was when they went into the academy and when they came through the academy - we expect them to follow it."
"It is also important to note that individuals who are looking up people's names, addresses, homes and where their families live, and calling in threats to people - that needs to stop," said Brown. "That cannot be considered in the interest of justice...unjust behavior is no substitute for fighting for justice."
"We've investigated on several occasions, and we've also partnered up with federal agencies because are involving multiple computers..." added Gramaglia. "We've brought the feds in, and we have investigated this, so we take this very seriously. If you start threatening officers' families and children, we absolutely will take that very aggressively and pursue it as far as we can."
