SPRINGFIELD, IL. – A ceremony has been organized in the City Council Chambers in which eight new officers joined the Springfield Police Department. Mayor Jim Langfelder and Kenny Winslow, the chief of Springfield Police Department, swore in the new officers at 2:00 pm.

He hoped that the officers will protect their community and neighborhood through their professionalism and desire to serve. The new officers will go through a field training of 20-week with the veteran officers of the Springfield Police Department.
