Former Springfield Police chief dies

Posted online

Former Springfield Police Department Chief Troy Majors has died. He was 82.

Majors served as the local chief of police 1980-90, according to a news release.

Prior to coming to Springfield, Majors retired after 22 years of service with the Kansas City Police Department, where he attained the rank of major. In 1990, he returned to the Kansas City area.

"Chief Majors is remembered as a kind soul who always had a joke to tell," SPD officials said in the release.

Majors' LinkedIn profile indicates he most recently worked in court security for the Clay County sheriff's office. A Clay County Facebook post shows he retired from court security in 2018.

The Springfield Police Department’s 2019 annual report shows a total budget of $42.6 million, 346 sworn officers and 76 other staff members.
