MAY 31, 2017 (Lincoln, Neb.)  — Troopers with the Nebraska State Patrol (NSP) Headquarters Troop- Lincoln,
in conjunction with the Nebraska Game & Parks Commission and the Lancaster County Sheriff’s Office, will
conduct special enforcement efforts from June through August, focusing on recreational areas in Lancaster
County.

One goal is to reduce the potential for alcohol related crashes are recreational areas including Branched Oak
State Recreational Area, Blue Stem Recreational Area, Conestoga Lake, Pawnee Lake, Stagecoach Lake,
and Wagon Train Recreational Area.

“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.”

The enforcement will focus primarily on weekends from June 1 through August 17, with troopers conducting
high visibility patrols and vehicle checks.

A grant for $4,675 from the Nebraska Office of Highway Safety (NOHS) will help fund the special enforcement
