Nebraska Troopers Care...

As members of the State Troopers Association of Nebraska (S.T.A.N.), sworn officers and personnel of the Nebraska State Patrol have a long history of community involvement and support for charitable causes within the State of Nebraska.

Wishing Well Program

In cooperation with the Children’s Hospital in Omaha and Regional West Medical Center in Scottsbluff, S.T.A.N. supports the Wishing Well Program. Begun by the Association in 1985, S.T.A.N. continues to help grant wishes to seriously ill children through the hospital foundations. The program is designed to give an extra boost to the morale of children in an effort to assist their recovery. Children’s wishes have included visitations they admire— such as athletes, coaches, and entertainers. Other wishes granted have been special trips to sporting events, amusement parks, or visits to cherished places. Wishes have been granted for special medical equipment, toys, clothes, and electronic games to help make a restricted lifestyle more enjoyable. Special Needs Fund—The Wishing Well Program expanded in 1992 to provide families in need with cribs, highchairs, car seats, special foods, and medicine.

How it Began

The State Troopers Association of Nebraska was formed over thirty years ago, after troopers across the state recognized the need for a representative organization of the state patrol officers. From its first days until the present time, S.T.A.N. has provided a unified voice for Nebraska’s troopers regarding public safety issues, professional law enforcement concerns and legislative initiatives.

The State Troopers Association of Nebraska also enhances communication among troopers about duty experiences while strengthening their resolve to seek continued workplace involvement as a means of attracting and retaining highly qualified and motivated individuals to be Nebraska State Troopers.

Membership of S.T.A.N. is compromised of employees of the Nebraska state Patrol (NSP). All the duty activities of the NSP are funded by the State of Nebraska., Uniform Nebraska State Patrol officers are primarily assigned to traffic enforcement. The NSP has specialized divisions of officers for Carrier Enforcement, Air Wing, K-9 Units, Training Academy, Executive Protection, SWAT, Bomb Disposal, and Accident Reconstruction.

Investigative Services State Patrol officers are responsible for criminal, drug, alcohol & tobacco, and auto theft investigations. They also deal with criminal identification, the Crime Laboratory, the Latent Fingerprint Laboratory, and the Sex Offender Registry.

Membership in S.T.A.N. is open to retired officers of all ranks.

In addition to monetary support, S.T.A.N. members contribute a considerable amount of time to benevolent activities. Examples include Teammate mentoring, grade school basketball coaching, youth soccer coaching, boy scout leading, and manning a tent for a Family Retreat Center at the Nebraska State Fair.
