Lincoln Journal Star

LINCOLN, Neb. — Almost 9 percent of Lincoln's police force will be suspended without pay for watching videos instead of patrolling or doing other work, Police Chief Tom Casady said Wednesday.

The five sergeants and 23 officers - who were working the department's third shift in the late night and early morning hours -face between one and 10 days of suspension, depending on their involvement, the chief said.
