Houston Withholds Personal View Of SPD Document Destruction

Springfield Mayor Mike Houston says he’s withholding judgment on the actions taken by some of the police department top brass related to the destruction of internal affairs documents. 


In a live interview on 970 WMAY’s “Jim Leach Show,” Houston declined to say whether he thought it was inappropriate for the department to shred documents that were the subject of a pending request under state public records laws.  And the mayor noted that he has heard differing legal opinions about the legality of such actions, but declined to say whether his own corporation counsel had told him such shredding would be allowable. 


Houston has asked Attorney General Lisa Madigan to weigh in, saying it’s important to get an independent perspective from an outside agency.
