SPRINGFIELD, MO -- One community is using classical music to fight crime. Speakers were put up around Springfield, Missouri. Classical music is blared on the town's square. The music starts in the morning and lasts into the night.

One business owner says people just like to lurk around the streets, but that's not the case anymore. In addition to classical music, the National Anthem is played through the speakers at noon each day.
