The Springfield Police Department is Springfield's police force. They are headed by the largely incompetent Police Chief Wiggum. There are at least three officers at the Station although in some cases large groups of officers and cars are shown but none are named. The facilities are quite small for a town the size of Springfield with only a few Cruisers and Officers.

The Springfield Police Station.

The police force is extremely corrupt, known for taking bribes from criminals, misusing equipment and mishandling evidence. The police are also known to have been bribed by Diamond Mayor Joe Quimby, covering up scandals, and working to keep the public out of the political business. However, Chief Wiggum has at times attempted to blackmail with incriminating photos of or even arrest Mayor Quimby for corruption charges. The Police Department also suffered at least one prisoner uprising where the prisoners stole their guns, tazers, and uniforms leaving the police at the prisoners mercy and attempted to call for help.[1]

The police station at one time competed with the vigilante crime force SpringShield, run by Homer Simpson, partnered with Lenny Leonard and Carl Carlson.

After a huge economic crisis, the police force was forced to allow low-level crime spread like wildfire as a result of massive cutbacks preventing them from having the resources to effectively enforce the law (to the extent that they actually had to use an extremely ineffective substitute for a radar gun by mixing a thermos with a hose head, and Chief Wiggum having to draw a gun to make it seem as though he actually had one).

The police cars in Springfield are Dodge Diplomats or/and Chevrolet Caprices of the 1980s.

Uniform and Equipment Edit

UniformEdit

The standard police uniform in navy blue dress shirt and pants with a dark blue tie and black dress shoes. Officers also wear a light blue bulletproof vest often used during raids. In addition a duty belt is worn.

EquipmentEdit

Officers seem to use long barreled pistols, pepper spray, "t" baton and handheld stun gun. They also carry pump action shotgun which is stored in cruisers. Officers conducting tactical operations also used automatic rifles and bolt action sniper rifles.

VehiclesEdit

The standard patrol vehicles seem to be 1990 civillian vehicles in Springfield livery (white and blue with logos) or occasionaly LAPD livery. They also operate vans and tactical vehicles. Lights are diverse between a standard bar and two ratating beacons( red and blue or red and red) with a siren in the middle. Over all the SPD fleet seems badly underfunded and outdated.

Trivia Edit

  • The police have a website named Springfield Police Home Page.
  • Chief Wiggim's call sign is Papa Bear
  • They operate at least on all white helicopter as air support and an olive green armoured battering ram tactical tank for raids
