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.
