Vehicle Thefts Trending Down, According to Springfield Police

Springfield Police say that vehicle thefts in the city are occurring less and less in comparison to previous years.

Chief Paul Williams talked about the department’s focus and the statistics of car thefts in Springfield at a city council meeting on Monday.

According to Williams, he believes a big reason for the drop in thefts is due to the public awareness campaign that reminded residents to not leave their keys in the car, and to never leave your car running unattended.

He also says that having more investigators in the department is a contributing factor, as well.

As of now, there have been 500 less reports of vehicle theft in Springfield compared to 2021.
