Springfield police officer Michael Vogt is the department’s spotlighted officer for the week.
A community member praised officer Vogt for his demeanor and attention after a crime at their home.
“There was an attempted break in at our home,” the resident wrote, “and Officer Vogt went above and beyond in the service he gave our family. Not only did he reassure us that he and his squad would find the responsible party, he attempted to lift fingerprints off our back windows. He showed me how officers dust for fingerprints and even let me dust a few myself. I can’t say enough words about officer Vogt and the service he provided.”
The Springfield police department is featuring an officer each week who is cited by a community member for providing outstanding professionalism while on the job.
