The Springfield Police Department is sending more than a dozen Police Officers to assist with recovery and public safety efforts in Lawrence, Andover and North Andover.
“We know first hand in Springfield the damage a gas explosion can cause and the resources it takes to recover. Our Police Officers will do whatever is necessary to help our brothers and sisters in Eastern Massachusetts that are dealing with this catastrophe,” said Springfield Police Commissioner John Barbieri.
Springfield Mayor Domenic J. Sarno spoke with Lawrence Mayor Dan Rivera and also offered any assistance his team or city may need.
Springfield Police Officers will work an evening and overnight shift on Saturday into Sunday and Commissioner Barbieri said the Springfield Police Department will continue to provide mutual aid in the coming days if needed.
