FBI director makes stop in Springfield to meet with law enforcement officials

SPRINGFIELD - During a visit to Springfield on Tuesday, FBI Director James Comey said that stopping public corruption and violent crime are priorities in the region.

The trip to Springfield was part of a series of visits that Comey is making nationwide.  Comey met with about 80 police chiefs, sheriffs, federal officers, state police leaders, and others during his Tuesday visit.  He named Sean Cox as the new special agent in charge of the Springfield division last month.

Springfield Police Chief Kenny Winslow also met with Comey, and said that it was a positive experience.
