Springfield’s new police chief says changes are coming to the police department… and some people on the inside aren’t going to like them.
Kenny Winslow was confirmed by the City Council Tuesday night after a half-hour closed-door session to discuss allegations posted on the Springfield Leaks website.
The site alleged that Winslow plans changes to the department’s organizational structure that could affect internal affairs investigations. Winslow acknowledged that he intends to change the “culture” of the department, but didn’t go into specifics.
He did say that he addressed the concerns of aldermen in that executive session meeting.
The vote was unanimous in favor of confirming Winslow.
