Increased Patrol at State Parks

(7-22-14) DUI checkpoints and high visibility patrols are coming to Lancaster County state parks for the next three weeks.

The special enforcement will be focusing on reducing alcohol-related crashes around recreational areas including Branched Oak, Bluestem, Conestoga, Pawnee, Stagecoach and Wagon Train. The enforcement is partly being paid by a $3,000 grant from the Nebraska Office of Highway Safety and will mostly focus on weekends from July 25 to August 14th. 

Lancaster County Sheriff, Terry Wagner wants to ban alcohol at Branched Oak Lake after 700 partiers converged on one area during the Memorial Day weekend and trashed the beach.
