Incident:                              Phone Scam

Location:                             Springfield Area

Case Number:                   15-2843               

Date/Time:                         3-31-15 / 2003hrs

More Information:          Sgt Charboneau 541-726-3714 

Completed By:                 Sergeant Kirkpatrick





NARRATIVE OF INCIDENT:  The Springfield Police Department has become aware of a phone scam where the suspect claims to be a Sergeant with the Springfield Police Department.  Several victims have notified SPD that the caller claims to be with the Warrant Division at the Springfield Police Department.  He goes on to say that they missed jury duty and he has a bench warrant for their arrest.  He says he wants $250.00 to lift the warrant.  He goes on to say the person could appear personally at 220 5th St.  However the suspect is unaware that the old Central Lane Justice building (220 5th St), is no longer a courthouse.  In one report he asked the victim to obtain a $250 gift card from a local store (Albertson’s, Walmart etc) to obtain the gift card number over the phone.


The Springfield Police Department, like other agencies, DO NOT operate in this manner.  Anyone receiving a call similar to this is asked to hang up and call SPD (541-726-3714), or the agency he claims to be associated with, to verify the legitimacy of the information.


If you have been the victim of this scam and have not reported it, you are asked to call SPD (541-726-3714).

SPD first in Oregon to offer SmartPhone App



The Springfield Police Department is pleased to announce the availability of a new Police iPhone and Android application for the citizens of Springfield.  The app named “My Police Department” or “MyPD” is available now for free in the iTunes & Android marketplace.


This app includes features for checking on the latest news, social media postings, directions, department contacts, submitting feedback, questions, department surveys, crime tips and more.


The app is available to the public free of charge.  The app is also free of any advertisements or pop ups.


All of the forms can be sent anonymously to the department, though we encourage an email address or phone number if you would like a response.  Users also have the ability to upload photos and GPS information with the app forms (for example a parking issue, graffiti complaint, etc).


As is the case with our other emails, tip line and social media sites, this app is not for any type of emergency situation.  SPD will attempt to review all messages in a timely fashion but do not always actively monitor all messages at all times.


The app was developed by Detective Peter Olson of Peabody, Massachusetts who founded the company WiredBlue LLC.  WiredBlue has more features planned for future releases.  Any suggestions can be directed to the department by emailing SPD at or the app developer at
