U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder visited the Buffalo office of the Western District of New York on Friday.
He discussed a number of issues important to the safety of the Western New York community with U.S. Attorney William J. Hochul Jr. and staff. Topics included the office’s successful efforts in prosecuting violent crime, public corruption, national security, human trafficking and financial crime.
In addition, Holder met with the entire staff of the Buffalo and Rochester offices, telling the 100 prosecutors and support staff members gathered that he has “great faith” in their abilities and that the office is known for its exemplary work, according to a release.
“It was an honor to host the attorney general of the United States and share with him the results of the hard work of our staff,” Hochul said.
