Officers On-Duty 24/7

Our Department is staffed with 6 full-time & 3 part-time officers. These officers provide our community with 24 hour coverage. We are proud of the fact that we have one of the lowest crime rates in Sangamon County.

The Village of Sherman is served by the Sangamon County enhanced Emergency 9-1-1 telephone system. In the event that you have an emergency, Police, Fire or EMS, simply dial 9-1-1 and help will be on the way. If you need to speak to a Sherman Officer concerning a non-emergency matter, you may call 753-6666 to talk to a dispatcher or 496-3256 in which your call will be answered by a Sherman Officer or you may leave a voice message and your call will be returned at our earliest convenience.

The Sherman Police Department is also proud to provide many other services to our community other than the normal patrol duties. We offer finger printing, free of charge, for those individuals needing their prints taken for any reason. We are also very active in the Williamsville/Sherman School District. We instruct the R.I.S.E. program to our 5th graders in the Sherman Grade School. We were instrumental in starting the S.A.V.E. chapter program in the High School and still serve as an active participant today. We offer a Youth Mentor Program for the youth in our community in conjunction with a Parent Support group. We are also proud participants in the Teen Court Program.

I am very proud of the officers of the Sherman Police Department and the professionalism that they show in their day to day duties in our community. They are all willing to go above and beyond the call of duty for all of you. I would ask that we all give thanks to the dedication of these officers.
