Special Enforcement Set for Lancaster County Rec Areas



(Lincoln, Neb.)- From June through August, troopers with the Nebraska State Patrol Headquarters Troop-Lincoln, in conjunction with the Lancaster County Sheriff’s Office and the Nebraska Game & Parks Commission, will conduct special enforcement efforts focusing on recreational areas in Lancaster County.

The special enforcement effort will focus on reducing the potential for alcohol related crashes around recreational areas to include, Branched Oak State Recreational Area, Bluestem State Recreational Area, Conestoga Lake, Pawnee Lake, Stagecoach Lake, and Wagon Train State Recreational Area.

The effort will focus primarily on weekends, from June 1 through August 31, with troopers conducting high visibility patrols and vehicle checks.

“Our recreational areas are busy places during the summer months and the increase in traffic can lead to congestion and crashes,” said Captain Lance Rogers, Commander Headquarters Troop-Lincoln.  “By increasing our visibility we hope to help create a safe environment for visitors through voluntary compliance with all traffic safety laws.”

A $7,700 grant from the Nebraska Office of Highway Safety (NOHS) will help fund the special enforcement effort. ###
