Letter: NFTA should abolish its Police Department

NFTA should abolish its Police Department

The Niagara Frontier Transportation Authority Police Department is the biggest waste of money spent by the agency and should be abolished. The Transportation Security Administration is responsible for and does a fine job of airline security. Harassing the traveling public by giving out speeding tickets at the airport is totally unnecessary.

We survived just fine when a Cheektowaga police officer was assigned to the airport area, and they can be there just as quick if the TSA calls for assistance. As for the subway system, the Buffalo police can simply answer calls in this area. The money spent on the NFTA police cannot be justified by this struggling authority.
