Last night, a local TV station ran a story about this, […]

Orlando…a new normal? Perhaps.
A week later I have some observations about the shooting in Orlando. We may be entering a new normal. Terrorism has been around for a long time, but generally not to this degree in this nation.

Ground beef… $8.79
Thoughts from Chief Sjolander… Ground beef… $8.79 Standing in line at the grocery store, the person in front of me checking out says “You might want to pick another lane, I’m counting out change”. I say, “No worries, I’ve got time”, and they continue… I’m watching them, because that’s what I do. I watch people, […]

Appears to be working
A few months ago, the Lincoln Police Department implemented a new policy that encourages officers to take advantage more often of a state law that allows vehicles driven by suspended drivers to be impounded for 30 days. The policy change went into effect in late February, and provides an opportunity for a bit of evaluation […]

Why We Do This Job
Law Enforcement has certainly seen some drastic changes in the past decade or two, even more so in the last few years. Our honorable profession, in many areas of the country, has gone from respected to resented, from thanked to threatened.
