Field Services Major

The Field Services Major commands the Nebraska State Patrol Field Services Division.

The Field Services Division encompasses uniformed patrol troopers, carrier troopers, police service dog handlers, and the aviation support pilots. Troopers strive for fatality free roadways through traffic enforcement, public education, and cooperation. This vision cannot be achieved by the Nebraska State Patrol alone but by working with our partners in highway safety which include the Nebraska Department of Roads (NDOR), Nebraska Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV), Nebraska Office of Highway Safety (NOHS), local law enforcement, first responders, highway safety advocate groups and our citizens.

Although the primary mission of the agency is unchanged, what has altered is the approach to making our roadways safer. The Nebraska State Patrol is leveraging technology to place troopers where they can be the most effective by utilizing real time crash data and analyzing calls for service. With this information, the agency can take a practical approach to education concepts and enforcement. Directed patrolling, high visibility patrols, the targeting of impaired drivers and occupant restraint compliance are just some of the concepts employed by the agency utilizing this data. By employing current technology, troopers are now sent to calls for service by Computer Aided Dispatch (CAD), and their actions are documented by a Records Management System (RMS), and digital in-car cameras. Mobile Data Computers allow troopers to issue electronic citations and accident reports. A new digital statewide radio system will allow them expanded, clearer, interoperable radio coverage.
