Lincoln Police Partner with Other Agencies for Arrest Warrant Detail
On Thursday, September 1, 2016, members of Lincoln Police Department, Lancaster County Sheriff's Office, University of Nebraska-Lincoln Police Department, Nebraska State Patrol and the U.S. Marshall's Fugitive Task Force partnered for a city-wide arrest warrant detail. Law enforcement saturated the city in two-person teams, contacting as many offenders as possible. The organized effort was to help reduce the high volume of arrest warrants in Lincoln. The detail proved successful with 455 warrants attempted and 98 warrants served. The individuals were wanted for misdemeanor and felony offenses.
Meanwhile, several officers also participated in a "saturation detail". They patrolled high-density areas of Lincoln, taking an assertive approach to any offenses observed. These officers issued 277 official traffic citations and 140 warning citations. In addition, 20 individuals were arrested for narcotics offenses and 12 misdemeanor citations were written.
Strong relationships between area law enforcement make these collaborative events possible. By working together, we are able to make a greater impact and work toward shared goals.
