The Nebraska State Patrol (NSP) announces the promotion of Captain Jeff Pelowski to the position of Major in command of Central Field Services, encompassing Troop Areas C and H, as well as the NSP Carrier Enforcement Division and the NSP Training Academy.

“Major Pelowski has been a tremendous leader for our Investigative Services Division,” said Colonel John Bolduc, Superintendent of the Nebraska State Patrol. “I’m confident he’ll bring that same vision to this new position, leading troopers throughout the state as well as the troopers of the future.”

Major Pelowski has been with NSP for 24 years and has most recently served as the commander of the Investigation Services Division. Throughout his career, Pelowski has worked a variety of assignments within NSP, including positions in Patrol, Carrier Enforcement, Investigative Services, and SWAT.

“The mission of Investigative Services is that safe children represent safe communities,” said Major Pelowski. “It’s that proactive, high-visibility policing that I want to bring to this new role. We need to exceed the public’s expectation and increase safety and security for the citizens of our great state.”

Major Pelowski began his career in Troop D – North Platte before transferring to Troop C – Grand Island and eventually State Headquarters in Lincoln. Pelowski and his wife Barb have been married for 24 years. Their son Michael is a junior at the University of Nebraska – Lincoln.

The announcement completes a restructuring within NSP to better divide scope of administration throughout the state. Under the new structure, NSP has divided command of the largest division, Field Services, into three areas: Eastern, Central, and Western, with each Major commanding additional operational aspects of NSP. A fourth Major will command Administrative Services.

Major Pelowski will serve as Central Field Services Major. Major Brenda Konfrst is in command of Eastern Field Services, Special Operations, and Executive Protection/Capitol Security. Major Kyle Otte is in command of Western Field Services as well as the Investigative Services Division. Major Russ Stanczyk is in command of NSP Administrative Services.
