Sangamon County Sheriff Urges Metro Police


Sangamon County Sheriff Neil Williamson has once again raised the issue of a merger between his department and Springfield police.

 

Williamson has long been an advocate of the idea, and says it would allow for more efficient use of limited law enforcement resources. He says opposition from Springfield Mayor Mike Houston and others make it unlikely that the idea will go anywhere, but says the only other options are either a tax increase, or a reduced law enforcement presence in the county.

 

Williamson hopes that the county’s Citizens Efficiency Commission will produce recommendations in support of a merger.
