Poloncarz added that essential workers would still be permitted to travel during curfew hours but they would need to have proof of employment on them at all times.

The curfew comes after another night of protesting in the community which saw agitators turn violent, resulting in two police officers (one Buffalo Police Department officer and one NYS Trooper) being struck by a vehicle on Bailey Avenue.
