Officers began interviewing the witnesses who had fled the duplex and also began setting a perimeter.  A short time later, the suspect emerged from the back door of the duplex and was confronted and challenged by an officer at that location.  The suspect, who was armed with a handgun, was subsequently shot by the officer.  Officers then provided emergency medical aid to the suspect until EMS arrived on scene.

 

The suspect was transported to a local hospital and is currently undergoing treatment.

 

No officers were injured in this incident.

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 police@springfield-or.gov or the app developer at info@wiredblue.co
