Hold Cops Accountable (HCA)

HCA is a monthly event co-hosted by Malone and The Lincoln Police Department designed to give Lincoln residents an opportunity to publicly voice displeasure, compliments, complaints, concerns, or commendations concerning the Lincoln Police Department. The conversations, which are recorded by the HCA committee, will help inform the Lincoln Police Department’s training, policies, and procedures, especially those related to fair and impartial policing, cultural competency, and policing strategies.  The stories told by community members during these meeting will serve as educational “touchstones” that will be taught in LPD’s academy and annual in-service.
