Northwest Team Underage Drinking/Party Enforcement
To coincide with the return of school and the beginning of football season, the Lincoln Police Department's Northwest Team is conducting an underage drinking/party project. This concentrated effort is aimed to impact illegal behavior on University of Nebraska-Lincoln home football Saturdays.
Additional officers have increased enforcement in an effort to reduce the amount of illegal activity occurring in and around Memorial Stadium prior to and during home games. Enforcement during the first three games has resulted in the following citations:
|Minor in Possession||35|
|Minor Misrepresent Age||2|
|Maintaining a Disorderly House||2|
|Consuming in Public||54|
|Urinating in Public||6|
|Fail to Comply||1|
|Assault on a Police Officer||1|
|Other criminal offenses||2|
|House party contacts||10|
|Total citizen contacts||509|
Funding was provided with a grant from the Nebraska Office of Highway Safety and will continue for home football games in October and November.
