NE State Patrol celebrates 75 Years

Posted:

In conjunction with the on-going celebration of the Nebraska State Patrol's 75th Anniversary, the Troop B office in Norfolk held a public open house.

The event included static displays of the State Patrol helicopter, the mobile command post, K-9 demonstration, updated patrol cars and tours inside the headquarters building.

Patrol officials say the open house was a way to thank citizens for their support and give them an up-close look at what the State Patrol does.

They say there are a number of things that have changed over the past 75 years.

"There's so much stuff inside the cars now. We have the computers in there, radar, the new radio system, G-P-S. Technology is by far and away the biggest change over the last 75 years," said Captain Paul Hattan.

Hattan says the number of troopers on the force has substantially risen as well.  He says Troop B employs a total of 55 Troopers, and covers 23 counties in northern Nebraska, all the way from South Sioux City west to Valentine.
