    Sadly our crime rate here in Spring field is high for a town our size do some research If you think I lying. Springfield needs to wake up. The old way of fighting crime is not working. I love living here but feel that the police are loosing control at an alarming rate. They just don’t want to change the tried and true even if it obsolete.

    Police can’t be everywhere. Not everyone that lives here is thugs. Crime is all over the world so if u feel u could do better then be come a cop. Hope they catch all the bad guys. Just everyone needs to not let their guards down no matter where you are at. Everyone be safe and have a blessed day

    This wouldn’t have happend if Springfield PD would have had one of their cars parked at the intersection of Memorial and Tom Austin. All criminals leave in fear when they see that.
