Game Plan Set For Casino Security

 Safety in the area of the soon-to-be-opened MGM Casino in Springfield is still a hot topic. 

The  South End Business Association pressed Springfield Police Commissioner  John Barbieri for more details on a plan at a meeting on Tuesday. 

Barbieri said a new police substation, kiosks and the hiring of dozens of community policing officers are all part of the plan. 

The 950-million-dollar casino and resort is expected to open in the fall of 2018.
