Aldermen Demand Information on Decision to Destroy Internal Affairs Files


Springfield aldermen are demanding answers about an agreement between the police department and the union representing officers which calls for internal affairs records to be expunged more quickly.

 

The contract approved late last year calls for records of internal investigations to be destroyed after five years… but then, without city council approval, department brass approved a change to get rid of those records after four years.

 

As a result, some records that were being sought under a Freedom of Information request were destroyed.

 

Police Chief Robert Williams says the change was made to improve “efficiency” in the department.
