A message from the Chief of Police

I would like to welcome you to the Suring Police Department website.

I became the Chief of Police in November of 2015. I have been in law enforcement for 30 years with the last 28 years as a Sergeant with the Outagamie Sheriff’s Office. Both my parents were born and raised in the Suring area and have relation in the area.  From the start the community was very accepting and kind which impressed me very much. It is a quiet and very friendly community which takes great pride in themselves and their community.

The Suring Police Department is a progressive agency committed to community oriented policing. This philosophy includes problem solving as well as providing quality personalized service. Further, it is our desire to create a partnership with you, the community.

Thank you for taking the time to visit our website. If you have any suggestions on how we can improve this site, or how we do business, please let us know.


Thank you

Chief Phillip Christenson
