SpringShield was a security agency in Springfield set up by Homer Simpson.


After Homer caused an electrical blackout in Springfield, all of the citizens began looting businesses. Chief Wiggum was incompetent in restoring order, so Homer decided to take the law into his own hands and set up SpringShield. Although Homer, Lenny, and Carl were the only employees, they had a lot of business due to a television commercial which Marge described as "very effective". They also turned out to be much more efficient at fighting crime than the Springfield Police Department. Because of this, Mayor Quimby fired Chief Wiggum and proclaimed SpringShield to be Springfield's new police force. As a symbol of the transfer of authority, Quimby took the Chief's badge away from Wiggum and gave it to Homer.

SpringShield enjoyed a brief period of success, until Homer busted Fat Tony selling weasels with cotton balls stuck to them as "Toy Poodles". Fat Tony vowed that he and his associates would gun down Homer if he didn't leave Springfield by noon the following day. Homer resolved to stay, and at noon the following day, Fat Tony and his gang showed up at the Simpson home as promised. They were about to shoot Homer when Maggie, surreptitiously, used a rifle to shoot (albeit only injure) all of the gang.

Homer then decided to give the badge to the next person he saw, who, coincidentally, turned out to be Wiggum, marking the end of SpringShield.
