A message from Jeff Fuesting, Chief of Police

On behalf of the men and women of the Effingham Police Department, I want to welcome you to the Effingham Police Department website. The members of our department are committed to providing the highest level of professional police services to the Citizens of Effingham and our visitors.

I hope you take the time to learn about your police department and the men and women who serve with passion and dedication everyday.

I'm honored to represent the department as we strive to ensure the safety of all who live, work, visit, and play in our community. We also recognize that maintaining our safe community is done through a partnership with the members of the community. Community engagement is a priority and I encourage citizens to report suspicious activity. Your eyes and ears, along with feedback will increase the delivery of services by our team members. Remember our motto of #SeeitSayit!

In closing, I encourage you to visit our social media resources often to obtain updated information that may be of vital interest to you and our community.
