Police Chief To Retire, City Corporation Counsel Resigns Amid Uproar Over SPD Shredding Scandal


There’s been a big shakeup at Springfield City Hall. 

 

Amid turmoil over new revelations and new questions over the police department’s destruction of internal affairs records, Police Chief Robert Williams has announced his intention to retire… and Corporation Counsel Mark Cullen has submitted his resignation. Both were key players in the decision to speed up the shredding of those documents… some of which were the subject of pending Freedom of Information Act requests. 

 

Mayor Mike Houston says Williams is eligible to retire in October, but will use accumulated vacation and sick time to leave before then.  His exact departure date has not been set.  The mayor will appoint an interim chief in the near future. 

 

As for Cullen, Houston says the city attorney did not want to be a distraction.  Houston declined to answer directly when asked if he had encouraged either man to step aside.
