LINCOLN — The State Ombudsman's Office, formally called the “Office of the Public Counsel,” is an independent department of state government that investigates complaints from citizens about the actions of state agencies.
With a staff of 14 and an annual budget of about $1 million, the office mediated a record 3,000 complaints last year, of which about half came from prison inmates or their families.
