Springfield Township organized its first police force in 1903 with the appointment of two patrolmen. Originally known as "The Night Watch and Police Force," Springfield's first crime fighters were on duty seven days a week from 4p.m. until midnight. However from 1903 to 1908 the police were on duty only between the months of May and September. Today the Springfield Township Police Department includes twenty-nine sworn officers providing safe streets and secure neighborhoods for our residents. The Department maintains an aggressive crime protection and detection strategy and a no-nonsense traffic safety program to achieve its goals. This approach, in partnership with our active civilian town watch group, has resulted in an extremely low crime and vehicle accident rate.

Description: If you have an alarm system at your residence or business, you must complete and submit an alarm registration form with the Springfield Township Police Department.

The Block Party Permit form replaces the practice of writing a letter to the Chief of Police requesting permission for a street closure for neighborhood block parties. The permit must be filled out by the person coordinating the block party, and must be signed by at least 75% of the households located on the street to be closed. The application should be returned to the office of the Chief of Police at least ten days prior to the scheduled block party.
