Officers to conduct special patrols in Lancaster, Gage counties

LINCOLN, Neb. – Nebraska Game and Parks Commission conservation officers will conduct special enforcement patrols focusing on state recreation areas (SRA) and other Commission-managed property in Lancaster and Gage counties.

The efforts will focus primarily on weekends from June 30 through September 3, with conservation officers conducting high-visibility patrols on and off the water.

These special patrols will focus on reducing the potential for alcohol-related vehicle and boat accidents around Branched Oak SRA, Pawnee SRA, Bluestem SRA, Wagon Train SRA, Rockford SRA, and Wildwood Wildlife Management Area.

Visitors to those areas are reminded that alcohol consumption on park and wildlife areas is prohibited on all roadways, designated swimming areas and parking areas. Consumption of alcohol also is prohibited between 10 p.m. and 6 a.m. and where posted with signs.

A grant from the Nebraska Department of Transportation-Highway Safety Office will help fund this special enforcement effort.
