How to Commend a Police Department Employee
When you receive service from our department that you feel is worthy of a commendation, we would like hear about it. Although our employees do not expect to be thanked for everything they do, recognition of exceptional service is always appreciated. You can either write a brief letter describing the incident and the actions you feel were exceptional, or you can call 402-441-6000 and ask to speak with a supervisor. You may also call the Internal Affairs Office at 402-441-7222. This kind of feedback helps us to know if we are doing a good job.
