SUSPECT:     David James Darr DOB: 12/18/63

 

VICTIM:        Tania Ann Romero DOB: 09/10/65              

                       

NARRATIVE OF INCIDENT:  

Springfield Police Officers responded to a report of a stabbing victim requesting medical assistance at 2683 Centennial Blvd., Springfield.  Eugene/Springfield Fire and Springfield Police arrived to assist the male who was identified as David Darr. Darr was extremely intoxicated and though he made simple utterances, he was uncooperative with law enforcement at the time.

 

The involved female was identified as Tania Romero and was located several blocks away from the residence and in the company of a six-year old male juvenile who had witnessed the incident. Based on field interviews and evidence located at the scene, the circumstances appeared that Darr and Romero were involved in a physical altercation in the residence. Darr was established as the aggressor in the altercation and was physically on top of Romero when Darr was stabbed by Romero.

 

Darr has since been transported to Sacred Heart Hospital River Bend and has been admitted for medical treatment. This remains an active investigation.

Incident:           Springfield Elks Club donates to SPD CHETT Fund                

 

Date/Time:       August 26, 2016

 

Completed By:  Lieutenant Scott McKee, Office (541) 726-3691

 

 

The Springfield police department received a sizable donation to their CHETT Fund (Community Help Easing Trouble Times).  Springfield Elks Lodge # 2145 made the donation after hearing of the fund and the unique way the fund has been used to help those in need.  Joyce Foster, of the Springfield Elks Lodge presented their check to SPD during a banquet meeting last at the lodge in Springfield. 

 

Most recently, CHETT monies were used to help 83 year-old Charlie Goodloe rest up for a few nights at the Super 8 Motel on Gateway in Springfield before completing the last leg of his cross-country journey from Newport, Oregon to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina and back.  Goodloe, who completed his trek last week, decided to make this long journey in an effort to draw public attention to Oregon’s elderly homeless.  

The CHETT Program is a funding stream consisting of monies donated by the community intended to provide resources to meet the short-term emergency needs of the most vulnerable in Springfield.  Funds from the account are to be used for victims of crime, those displaced by crime or critical incident (including innocent family members of perpetrators), or people in the community with little hope or few options.  

SPD officers have found their ability to utilize CHETT funds to help those in critical need is a good way to create rapport and introduce other social services to create long term solutions.

The CHETT program is the result of a citizen inquiry from Chester (Chet, wife Carolyn) Martin, a retired U.S. Coast Guard veteran and Springfield resident, who contacted the Springfield police wanting to contribute funds to the Springfield Police Department to be used by officers to help VETS and others in need of temporary assistance in circumstances of crisis or critical need. 

Chet and Carolyn Martin made their initial $750 start-up donation to the fund in March last year.  And now, thanks to individual and group donations like that from the Springfield Elks Lodge, the fund has grown to nearly $17,000.  Chester Martin passed away last month, but his legacy and the benevolent spirit behind his fund lives on through such donations.   Donations to CHETT fund can be made in person at the Springfield Justice Center at 230 Fourth Street, Springfield.

Incident:              New Community Assistance Program      

 

Date/Time:         December 16, 2015

 

Completed By: Lieutenant Scott McKee   726-3691

 

 

Springfield police, acting on the suggestion of a Springfield citizen and retired veteran of the United States Coast Guard have established a fund for citizens to contribute money to help ease troubled times for those in temporary need of assistance. 

The CHETT Program (Community Help Easing Troubled Times) is a funding stream consisting of monies donated by the community intended to provide resources to meet the short-term emergency needs of the most vulnerable in Springfield.  Funds from the account are to be used for victims of crime, those displaced by crime or critical incident (including innocent family members of perpetrators), or people in the community with little hope or few options.   Examples of uses could include, but are not limited to; meals, lodging, transportation, crime scene damage repair, and/or other immediate short term emergency assistance. 

The CHETT program is the result of a citizen inquiry from Chester (Chet, wife Carolyn) Martin, a retired U.S. Coast Guard veteran and Springfield resident, who contacted the Springfield police wanting to contribute funds to the Springfield Police Department to be used by officers to help VETS and others in need of temporary assistance in circumstances of crisis or critical need. 

Chet and Carolyn Martin made their initial $700 donation today at the Springfield Justice Center and encourage others to give what they can so police can provide short term assistance at times of critical need to those who may have little hope or few options.  

Officers are now encouraged to consider these funds as a benevolent resource to be used to assist those in critical or emergent temporary need. 

Officers/employees who identify a person in need of short-term emergency or critical assistance will notify the watch commander, who will assess the proposed or contemplated usage of funds and on approval will use their City of Springfield purchasing card to address the immediate expense.  The expense will then be reconciled to the CHETT program fund.
