Niagara Falls Mayor Robert M. Restaino released his most recent city update on Friday, January 29th, 2021, which included a minute and a half segment on police incident reports. The City of Niagara Falls, and Restaino in particular, have been under fire by a variety of media outlets over the past two weeks after it was initially reported by the Niagara Reporter that the city had ended a decades old practice of disseminating police incident reports to media outlets each day.

Restaino, in a statement earlier this week, stated that he made the decision to protect victims. Media outlets were quick to point out that this decision was made during a record-setting year for the Cataract City who saw 18 homicides in 2020.

In the video update on Friday, January 29th, Restaino vowed for a solution to be reached in the next week. The full video can be found below:
