Two Meetings Remain To Discuss Next Springfield Police Chief

Posted: Updated:
SPRINGFIELD – Tonight, June 15, is the final day to attend forums to discuss thoughts on Springfield's next Police Chief.

The first forum will take place at the Boys and Girls Club located at 300 South 15th Street in Springfield. It will run from 5:30 – 6:30 PM. This forum is being hosted by the NAACP.

The final forum will be in Ward 6 at the Laurel United Methodist Church located at 631 South Grand Avenue from 7:30 – 8:30 PM.

These forums are moderated by members of the Police Review Panel. The open forums give residents the opportunity to share thoughts on traits they believe the next Police Chief should possess. Attendees can also talk about areas the next Chief should focus on more.

Those who are unable to attend the forums can provide input and submit feedback online through the City's website. To do so, visit and look for the link “Police Chief Forums.”
