California Penal Code Section 832.5 (a) states:

“Each department or agency in this State which employs peace officers shall establish a procedure to investigate citizens' complaints against the personnel of such departments or agencies, and shall make a written description of the procedure available to the public.”

Penal Code Section 148.6 (b) states that any law enforcement agency who accepts a concern of misconduct against a peace officer shall require the complainant read and sign the following statement:

“You have the right to make a complaint against a police officer for any improper police conduct. California law requires this agency to have a procedure to investigate citizen's complaints. You have a right to a written description of this procedure. This agency may find after investigation that there is not enough evidence to warrant action on your complaint; even if that is the case, you have the right to make the complaint and have it investigated if you believe an officer behaved improperly. Citizen complaints must be retained by the this agency for at least five years. It is against the law to make a complaint you know to be false. If you make a complaint against an officer knowing that it is false, you can be prosecuted on a misdemeanor charge."

Should you desire to file a formal complaint against an officer, you may come to the Lincoln Police Department, day or night, and complete the required documents.
