Neighborhood Police Officers
The Springfield Police Department has eight patrol officers assigned to the Neighborhood Police Officer (NPO) Program. Each NPO is assigned to one of the eight beats that divides the city. Their main goal is to improve the quality of life of the residents in their assigned beats. They seek to satisfy this goal by identifying problems and concerns of the citizens and acting upon them to develop an appropriate solution. The NPO also serves as a liaison between the department and the various neighborhood associations throughout the city.
