Springfield Police Sued For Destroying Internal Affairs Investigation Files


A man who sought files of Springfield police department internal affairs investigations has filed suit against the city, following the revelation that department rules were changed and dozens of those files were destroyed as a result.

 

Calvin Christian says he filed a Freedom of Information Act request before the documents were destroyed, and contends that the move to dispose of the files violates state law.

 

He is seeking $5,000 for each file that may have been improperly destroyed.

 

More than 70 files may have been shredded after department brass entered into a "memorandum of understanding" with the police union to speed up the process of expunging internal affairs records.
