Two years and 11 months later, Chief Behning is back in service with the Buffalo Police. His journey to this point hasn't been easy.

According to a Facebook post from his wife, the last (nearly) three years brought T.J. through 24 surgeries, and hundreds of therapy appointments.

Welcome back, Chief.
