There are many ways to be involved in your community as it relates to the Springfield Police Department. There are Community Beat Management Teams that meet in the three districts/nine sectors around the City and the Citizen's Police Academy. The City also has a calender of events to keep citizens informed. The Police Department's Community calendar is available here.
The Beat Management Teams and Citizen Academy are designed to provide information to citizens and help them make informed judgments about the SPD and the issues that effect law enforcement efforts in the community. If you want to learn more about getting involved, please contact Magda Colon, the Citizen Liaison, for more information. She can be reached by either e-mail or telephone (413-787-6359).
