Thomson Reuters Recognizes Springfield Police Department with Everyday Heroes Award

April 11, 2018  | 

Thomson Reuters has honored the Springfield (Mass.) Police Department with its 2018 Everyday Heroes award.

The Springfield PD was recognized for its use of Thomson Reuters CLEAR to locate and arrest a sexual predator. Armed only with the perpetrator’s first name and potential street location, investigators were able to find the suspect and uncover his significant criminal history. Soon after, the victim was able to positively identify the suspect via a photograph.

“Crimes of this sort are difficult to investigate and unfortunately many cases never close,” said Steve Rubley, managing director of Thomson Reuters Government business. “It is a testament to the tenacity and skill of the investigators, along with the courage of the victim in this case, that the suspect of this violent crime was located and captured. It is an honor to recognize the dedication of the Springfield Police Department with this year’s Everyday Heroes Award.”

As the recipient of the award, the Springfield PD received a $10,000 charitable donation made by Thomson Reuters on its behalf to the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children (NCMEC). The award and check presentation to department and NCMEC, respectively, occurred at a ceremony in Springfield last week.

The annual Everyday Heroes award is given to Thomson Reuters customers who use CLEAR, PeopleMap on Westlaw and other Thomson Reuters public records solutions. Customers are encouraged to share their stories on hero.thomsonreuters.com, and a panel of Thomson Reuters employee judges from the Government, Corporate and Law Firm business segments evaluate customer submissions and select the recipients.
