SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (KY3) – Springfield is getting a new task force to nab criminals who ship illegal goods by mail.
Police will be closely working with the United States Post Office.
”As long as there are bad guys out there we’re going to be continuing to be pursue these kinds of cases,” said Inspector Paul Shade with the U.S. Postal Inspection Service.
He says his agency teams up with law enforcement across the country.
”It’s great not only to establish the relationships with the different departments but it’s also great to have those extra set of eyes and ears out there to be able to help us be more effective at what we do,” he said.
Soon a Springfield Police officer will join the U.S. Postal Inspection Task Force.
