    Springfield, Tn. need at least 2 to 3 dispatchers near the phones. What dummy decided to put a machine to answer our emergency calls. You would have to first listen to all the “Bull” before you actually get someone to the phone. I believe the Polices are pushed in a corner scared to death. If we get the Officers to come out of hidding, maybe Springfield will be a better place with less crimes. We need California Police brutality on crimnals please!.

    Oh No! Get involved you say? I and my husband sat and watched drugs being dealt for months right across the street from our home. Cars went in and out like a fast food drive thru. I called the city and the county. Do you think they did anything? NO! It went on for over a year until the people moved. MOVED NOT ARRESTED!!!! So now they are somewhere in your community. So go ahead get involved. Call your local law enforcement. Maybe you will have better luck than I. After all it is an election year and that seems to be the only time we see our Sheriff out smiling with the public.

      I so agree with you on this one thing, “The dispatch in Robertson county sucks!” you can bet the dispatcher is being paid to do what they do, take their time when it comes to crime. I too had called several times on various occassions, but to my luck the dispatcher had a long conversation with me, while the crime escalated to a fight, still no officer. then once the unnessecary conversation was over between me and the dispatcher, he asked where was the problem, what race were the people, what were they wearing. The dispatcher sounds like a ex-criminal himself on the other end of the phone, or a friend or family member of the mentioned residence, the Officer finally showed up but passed slowly by the house with his flood light on, then left.

    I was one of the victims of the robberies. I’m still afraid to walk out. I turn 60 in August. I gave up around 100 bucks and a empty wallet. The bad part is none of the 3 guns have turned up even though I positive id one of them. 15,000 bond is an insult. Just to get out and do the same damn thing. Time to go over somebody head & get robbers off the streets. Just think if I said no, 3 guns. No excuses accepted. T.B.I. in the a.m.

      Could the Police be involved? I mean they are humans and many Officers had been caught driving dirty. Could it be? sure. ” All Cops are not good Cops” some are handling business on the streets black market special cheap, you’ll be surprised; from, sex, drugs, murder for hire, violence and robberies.
