Wellsville Police Chief Tim O'Grady (who is also a county legislator), said today that Wellsville and nearby towns are subject to copycat police shootings...like those in Dallas and Baton Rouge. Five Dallas cops were executed as were three in Baton Rouge. After the shootings, O'Grady said of his department, "I think more officers are aware."
He said, "I can't say it will never happen...here..."
The Chief did say, however, that "I don't see the national news as helpful."
The Chief said the Wellsville Police officers have discussed the national issues.
