Second Quarter Uniform Crime Report Released

Springfield's Uniform Crime Report for the second quarter of 2011 has been completed. It is important to mention that there has been a significant increase in reported gas drive-offs. This increase is due to changes in Police policy and additional training for convenience store employees, not an increase in actual incidents of gas theft. When adjusting for this type of incident, there would be a decrease in the reported Larceny/Theft category.
