More New 2014 Laws, But These Will Directly Affect Police


Some new laws for the New Year will have an impact on how Springfield police deal with teenage crime suspects. 

 

Previously, a 17-year-old suspected offender was charged and booked as an adult.  But a change in state law now requires 17-year-olds to be treated as juveniles and taken to the juvenile detention center.  Interrogations of teens suspected of violent crimes must also be recorded now under state law. 

 

Springfield Deputy Police Chief Dennis Arnold says the changes won’t be difficult to implement, but will be something that officers will need to keep in mind as the New Year gets underway.
