Springfield Wants Detroit Type Program

An ordinance is being crafted to require Springfield  gas stations and convenience stores to participate in a new  surveillance program. 

Police Commissioner John Barbieri and several City  Council members  announce the public safety model that is modeled after an initiative  in Detroit. 

Preliminary talks on the program were held last month, after  a late-night fatal shooting at a Mobil Station at the corner of Main  and Dover Streets in May. 

The fully council could hear about the  proposal in late December or early January, according to Public Safety  Committee Chairman Tom Ashe.
