More panhandling citations issued in Springfield
SPRINGFIELD, Ill. — Police in Springfield are issuing more citations for panhandling.
The State Journal-Register reports that officers have issued 44 citations so far this year for panhandling. That compares to 41 in all of 2011.
Springfield Deputy Police Chief Cliff Buscher says city officials and residents asked for increased enforcement of the city's anti-panhandling statute. He says that prompted the department to organize a few special details to discourage panhandlers.
