Captain Anthony Butler – LPD
Captain Butler gave an update on the crime activity in north Lincoln. Not surprisingly, crime statistics are down for the year due to most people having to stay home for so long. Now that restrictions are being relaxed, the LPD is preparing for an increase in thefts and crime in general. The police chief search is narrowed down to 4 candidates.
