Springfield Police Combat Violence on City Streets


Springfield city officials say they are working aggressively to combat gun violence on city streets… and to prevent escalation and retaliation.

 

Police Chief Robert Williams says that when trouble is brewing, his department’s Street Crimes Unit closely tracks the movements and activities of people known to be involved in gang-type activity, in hopes of keeping the violence in check.

 

But Williams says it can be tough to know where to focus those efforts, because so-called “gangs” in Springfield are much more loosely organized than those in places like Chicago or St. Louis.
