The West Springfield District Crime Prevention Office also thanks you in advance for your patience during the budget woes. With the reduction of the Crime Prevention Staff and the elimination of the School Education Officer, we cannot continue to provide presentations and / or public appearances like we have in the past and all elementary and middle school related events, whether public or private have been put on hold . We will continue to focus on our Neighborhood Watch Communities, our liaisons with other homeowners groups and associations, and our partnership with the Citizens Advisory Council. Requests for others activities will be handled on a case by case basis and we will continue to do our best to deliver our services in a timely manner.

IT's TIME FOR BACK TO SCHOOL ...
Back to school means paying attention to kids and traffic laws!! The goal this school year is to make everyone on the road safe. Be patient and coureous when driving and please don't forget the following items:
1) Do not let stress and frustration get the best of you while driving.
2) Be extra patient and extra courteous as you drive.
3) Do not drive while angry, extremely tired, or upset.
4) Allow extra time to get to your destination
5) When possible, change your schedule to avoid congested areas.
6) Give other drivers the benefit of the doubt - Don't we all make mistakes?
7) Always avoid conflicts, even if you are right.
And let's remember that those school buses are packed with precious cargo. So, when you are behind a school bus, take a deep breath, be patient, and appreciate that the children are being transported safely to school or child care settings.
