Sheriff Pushes for Merger of County and Springfield Police Dept.

After decades of discussion on the idea with no action, Sheriff Neil Williamson hopes a new local commission may provide a push in the direction of a “metro sheriff’s department.”


Williamson has long been a supporter of merging the sheriff’s department with Springfield police for a single countywide law enforcement agency, which he says could provide greater protection at lower cost.


But Mayor Mike Houston and others oppose the idea.


Williamson hopes the Citizens Efficiency Commission will recommend the idea as a way to improve efficiency and reduce duplication of services.
