The Landscape Waste Facility is currently closed for the winter

and will reopen in early spring 2022.  

Last year, Lincoln Police Department personnel responded to more than 6,105 requests for assistance from criminal investigations to mental health crisis interventions to school security and animal complaints. Officers also generate activity which involves traffic stops, school checks, business checks, and other community relations which pushes our activity over 10,000 last year during COVID.  To maintain a consistent and professional response, the department relies on comprehensive, up-to-date policies.


Recently, the Lincoln Police Department was recognized by the Lexipol Connect program for achieving Gold level for consistently and effectively disseminating policies to officers, issuing timely policy updates as laws change, and ensuring officers are trained on policies. Lexipol is the nation’s leading content, policy and training platform for public safety agencies; the Connect program tracks Lincoln Police Department performance on five metrics proven to measure success in policy management.


“Policy – and regularly training on policy – is crucial to the success of our department. We are proud to be recognized by Lexipol Connect for continuously improving professionalism and safety,” says Chief of Police Paul Adams. 


Lincoln Police Department’s excellence in policy and policy training enhances community safety by ensuring consistent, effective response based on national best practices.


“This recognition signifies that the Lincoln Police Department is dedicated to their mission of protecting and serving the community by consistently striving to remain up-to-date on vital policies and training. I commend all department personnel on this accomplishment and sincerely thank them for their commitment to their profession and for proudly serving our community”, says Acting Mayor Tracy Welch.
