About the Springfield Police Department

The Springfield Police Department is organized into three entities each commanded by a captain: Investigations; Patrol and Staff Services.  In the 2007 Annual Report, the Springfield Police Department, Chief of Police said, “2007 marked the 140th anniversary of the Springfield Police Division (1867-2007) and contained in this report are numerous historical photos from the Division’s history. This report also provides a summary of the activities and accomplishments of the division.

The Police Division responded to 63,113 calls for police service in 2007 and there were another 14,832 officer initiated calls for a grand total of 77,945 calls for service. Our busiest hour each day, on average, was from 5 pm to 6 pm. Our quietest- 6 am to 7 am. For the fourth year in a row we have seen a decline in all calls for service. Calls for service were down 2.25% from 2006. Theft and burglary were the two most reported crimes in 2007 for the fifth consecutive year.”
