Recognizing the importance of positive relationships with the community, employees of the Lincoln Police Department regularly participate in community events. These informal opportunities for engagement allow an open dialogue and a chance to discuss law enforcement issues or just provide a chance get to know one another. There is great value in developing contacts with citizens outside a call for service. The department also sponsors a number of youth programs to establish interest in our profession and to foster openness and trust with the next generation. We look forward to these opportunities and encourage citizens to join us.
