The Troop C Headquarters is located in Grand Island near the intersection of Hwy 281 and Old Potash Highway. Business hours are between the hours of 8 AM and 5 PM Monday through Friday.

Personnel assigned to Troop C are tasked with many public safety related responsibilities with particular emphasis on traffic crash reduction efforts utilizing both enforcement and education. Personnel in the five sergeant areas that make up Troop C monitor crash related data for trends and geographic similarities as a means of positively influencing crash statistics. These attempts to reduce the overall number of crashes may come in the form of high visibility patrols, DUI checkpoints or safety related public demonstrations utilizing rollover simulators, seat belt convincers or seat belt survivor crash trailer displays.

The men and women assigned to Troop C work closely with their counterparts in the various allied law enforcement agencies and state agencies including the Nebraska Department of Transportation (NDOT). By maintaining positive working relationships and providing assistance to other agencies when needed, citizens of Nebraska are assured of receiving the best quality law enforcement services available.
