Commissioner: "Not Indicative Of Our Department"

Springfield  Police Commissioner John Barbieri is releasing a statement after  multiple officers were accused of sex crimes last week. 

Two officers,  Joshua Figueroa and Derrick Gentry-Mitchell, were indicted for rape in  Hampden Superior Court, while another officer, Daniel Cintron, was  arrested for rape of a child on Thursday in Monson and arraigned in Springfield  District Court the next day. 

Barbieri said the behavior is not typical  of the nearly five-hundred men and women who represent the SPD and says  the department is exploring an early-warning system in patterns of  behaviors to try and prevent these types of actions moving forward. 

Yet  another Springfield officer, Jonathan Hernandez, was arrested on Friday for violating a restraining order.
