The essential goals of C-3 Policing:

  • Promote and foster community relationship/partnership with local,
  • State Police, community leaders and local organizations
  • Reduce gang activity and violence
  • Establish positive and effective youth/parental programs
  • The C-3 policing effort will be based in four geographical areas of the city of Springfield.
  • The assigned Springfield Police Sergeants and officers will work in different day off groups, 4p-12a

The goals of C-3 policing will be achieved through citizen and business interactions through the use of community meetings, walking and bike patrols, availability of officers through phone calls and office visits. Events like coffee with the cops, youth sports events, community picnics, etc.
