Why Community Outreach?
The Springfield Township Police Department has made community outreach a priority for our agency. We recognize that working with our community and reaching out to people has enabled us to do our jobs more effectively and made us a better department.
Many new residents of Springfield Township have moved from large cities or towns where they did not have an informal interaction with their police officers that exists in Springfield. Officers participating in the Welcome Wagon program visit every new homeowner in Springfield Township shortly after the resident moves in. The officer provides a comprehensive package of information regarding various Township and Police services available to them. The new resident is encouraged to contact that particular officer should any further police services be needed during their period of acclimation.
