Springfield, MA – Mayor Domenic J Sarno and Police Commissioner John Barbieri have partnered with Motorola Solutions to provide Springfield residents with daily crime information available through CrimeReports.com. Residents can access this information from the CrimeReports iOS or Android application, online at www.crimereports.com or directly from the Springfield Police Department website here: http://www.springfield-ma.gov/police/.
CrimeReports provides free, up-to-date crime information on an easy-to-use map for any location within Springfield’s boundaries. Residents can sign up to receive official alerts from the Springfield Police Department as well as daily, weekly, or monthly updates on any number of crime types. CrimeReports.com includes an anonymous tip submission tool so residents can send tips related to crimes they see listed on the map.
