It will be a busy two weeks for the Nebraska State Patrol. They will once again provide security at the Nebraska State Fair in Grand Island. They will be providing security 24-hours a day, seven days a week by patrolling the fairgrounds on bicycle and all-terrain vehicles. Visitors can also expect to see troopers walking through the midway and other fairground areas.
State Patrol spokesperson Deb Collins says visitors are also invited to stop by their booth inside the Exhibition Building. The exhibit includes information on career opportunities, roadway safety and safe driving practices to reduce serious injury and fatality crashes. The booth will be staffed by both sworn and civilian members of the agency.
The State Patrol Security Office will be located inside the Fonner Park Racing Office for fairgoers in need of law enforcement assistance.
