Small Town Law Enforcement
Small Town Cops, a NET News documentary, considers the changing role of police work in Nebraska’s small towns and rural areas. Even in the safest communities where everyone knows everyone else, police are trained to prepare for school shootings, encountering drug traffickers, and facing an increasing number of calls involving mental illness. In Small Town Cops, experienced and newly-trained officers explain what’s changed and why the still believe in serving their communities and keep them safe.

TOMORROW AND BEYOND
Economic Development and Cultural Preservation
“Route 6 was a critical transportation and communications link in the
development of Nebraska and neighboring states. I hope to preserve the
memory of that contribution and look forward to working with the
citizens of Nebraska to make the Cornhusker portion of Route 6 the
central hub of the Association and the extended Route 6 community.”
A major challenge for the Nebraska Association is to create economic
growth in the inner cities, small towns and rural communities.
High school and college students are encouraged to join the
Association’s internship program. There are no Sponsorship dues for
full-time students or active military personnel.
