The Effingham Police Department is eager to learn of instances where you feel an officer or professional staff employee performed in an exemplary manner. Commendations, like complaints, help the agency gauge overall customer satisfaction with our performance. We encourage you to share your opinions regarding the Effingham Police Department employees.

Effingham Police Department seeks to maintain public confidence in the ability of the department to investigate and properly adjudicate complaints against its members. A citizen who wishes to make a complaint against a member of the department should contact our department and ask to speak with a supervisor. The supervisor can take you complaint and forward it to the proper supervisor for further investigation. If you submit a complaint via email, please leave a phone number so a supervisor can reach you. 

Commendations or complaints can be emailed to Chief Jeffrey Fuesting at
