How safe is the Amtrak Station here?

I heard that the area is not very safe in Springfield and was hoping for some concrete details. I know that most accidents are when people are asking for it (like wandering the streets late at night). I'm planning a trip home for a friend from Worcester to NYC and the lay over is only 40 minutes in Springfield but my only concern is that she'll be a target somehow and that last thing I would want to hear is how something awful happened to her. Any information of the state of the station and the area around it would be appreciated. I checked around earlier but the reports are a few years old and things change. Thank you and have a nice day.

I have used the Amtrak station many times and if she stays in the station, she will be fine. I would not recommend going downstairs to the street level and wandering around at night. What time is her layover?

Be advised that Amtrak Police have a station at the Springfield Terminal. I've been there late at night and never had problems.
