Mayor Sarno and Acting Police Commissioner Clapprood Issue Crackdown Order on Renegade Dirt Bike/Bicycle Riders

Mayor Domenic J. Sarno states, “Like the vast majority of law abiding citizens here in Springfield and around our country, I have no patience and/or use for these miscreants’ actions, who create dangerous public safety issues by harassing drivers and pedestrians, who are just going about their daily business. Acting Police Commissioner Cheryl Clapprood will be meeting with local, state and federal public safety officials to amp up an aggressive plan of attack. I have ordered this crackdown on these negative individuals’ disrespectful and very dangerous behaviors, to not only apprehend them, but also confiscate their dirt bikes and bicycles too. ‘I have zero tolerance for their ‘B.S.’ – they not only put our public in harm’s way, but themselves too!’ I will continue to stand side by side with Acting Commissioner Clapprood and our Springfield Police Department urging our court system to send a strong message to eradicate this issue ASAP before someone gets hurt and/or killed.”
