The Lincoln Police Department's non-emergency phone line has been restored after they were interrupted by "technical difficulties" for about 11 hours. 

The line started working again at around 11:30 a.m. on Thursday, an LPD spokesperson announced in an email. The outage was first reported at about 12:23 a.m.

Emergency 911 was never affected by the outage. 

The outage is thought to be related to ongoing construction outside the Hall of Justice, the spokesperson said. 

Residents who need to reach the department's non emergency line can do so once again at 402-441-6000.
