Department Policies

The Lincoln Police Department is committed to being open and transparent with our community. With that commitment in mind, we have posted links to our written directives. All LPD policies are subject to annual review and revision. While most are posted in their entirety, some policies contain strategic or tactical information used in law enforcement training, investigative instruction and sensitive material that could jeopardize public safety or impede officers' ability to respond to critical incidents. Those policies remain confidential. 

Written directives of the Lincoln Police Department are for internal use to provide guidance for employees. These policies do not enlarge an employee's civil or criminal liability in any way. They should not be construed as creating a higher standard of safety or care in an evidentiary sense, with respect to third party claims. Violations of written directives, if proven, can only form the basis of a complaint by this department, and then only in a non-judicial administrative setting.
