Houston Blames ''Factions'' Within Police Department For Files Controversy


Springfield Mayor Mike Houston says the controversy over shredded police department files is the work of “factions” within the department that are seeking to discredit Deputy Chief Cliff Buscher and derail a possible future promotion to chief. 

 

Houston made the comment while talking with reporters about Police Chief Robert Williams’s decision to speed up the timetable for destroying internal affairs records, including some that had already been sought under state public records laws. 

 

Records pertaining to Buscher may have been among those shredded… although Houston says the number of destroyed documents is fewer than the 70-plus that had been originally alleged.
