Mr. Sinyangwe,
The City of Lincoln does Citizen Police Advisor Board. I would direct your attention to Lincoln Municipal Code Chapter 4.08 Any further information needed concerning the procedures of the Citizen Police Advisory Board should be directed to the City of Lincoln Mayor's Office. Additionally, the Lincoln Police Department has an Internal Affair Office. Information concerning the process can be found at Most of the Lincoln Police Department policies can be found on-line,

Please let me know if this response does not satisfy your public records request.
