14 Springfield police officers indicted on charges related to Nathan Bill’s Bar fight

Mayor Domenic J. Sarno states,

“Needless to say, this is not a good day for our Springfield Police Department. I am very disappointed and angry – these are very serious charges. Police officers are held to a higher standard and as I have stated before, must wear their badges, not only bravely, but with honor, integrity and professionalism. Acting Commissioner Cheryl Clapprood and I will continue our efforts to root out these negative actions by a few, in order to not take away from all the good work the vast majority of our officers do day in and day out for our Springfield community.”
