Safety Info Provided by Patrol at Nebraska State Fair

(Grand Island, Neb.)- Safety information and giveaways will again be provided by the Nebraska State Patrol (NSP) to visitors during the 147th Nebraska State Fair, August 26- Sept. 5, at Fonner Park in Grand Island.

Located in the 4H&FFA Exhibition building on the north end of the State Fairgrounds, the which will be staffed by both sworn and civilian members of the agency will include information on career opportunities, roadway safety, and giveaways.

“The State Fair provides our patrol family the opportunity to meet and greet the people we serve,” said Colonel Brad Rice, Superintendent of the Nebraska State Patrol. “It’s just one more way to let our citizens know the law enforcement services we provide as we work to ensure our state is safe and secure.”

The Nebraska State Patrol will again provide on-site law enforcement security 24 hours a day, seven days a week during the two weeks of the fair. Troopers will patrol the fairground utilizing a variety of means to include bicycles and all-terrain vehicles. The Nebraska State Patrol Security Office is located in the Fonner Park Racing Office for fairgoers in need of law enforcement assistance.

Troop C- Grand Island will also conduct two nights of special enforcements (Aug. 26 & Sept. 3) in Hall County in an effort to reduce the potential for serious injury and fatality crashes. The special enforcement effort is paid for thanks in part to a $1,550 grant from the Nebraska Office of Highway Safety (NOHS).

Col. Rice said, “We want everyone to enjoy the Nebraska State Fair experience and will do our part to make sure that happens in a safe, secure manner.”  ###
