Police Chief Stands by Decision to Destroy IA Files A Year Early


Springfield Police Chief Robert Williams says there was nothing improper about a policy change that led to the destruction of dozens of the department’s internal affairs files a year earlier than expected.

 

But Williams declines to comment on whether it was proper… or legal… to destroy those records while there were pending Freedom of Information Act requests for some of the documents.

 

Williams did apologize for not informing Mayor Mike Houston or the department’s labor negotiator about the change, but says modifications to the department’s union contract are routine.

 

When asked whether the decision to destroy files may have benefited any particular officer, Williams dismisses the idea as “conspiracy theories.”
