For the second time within about a year, a local police department is under investigation.
This time, West Springfield Mayor William Reichelt confirms that the State Attorney General is investigating certain procedures within the evidence room at the police department.
An issue was found by police and reported and the investigation is being undertaken.
Reichelt says that the city and the police department is cooperating with the investigation but he would not get into the issue any further at this time.
The Attorney General last night is refusing comment until the investigation is complete.
