Thanks to a partnership with two local businesses, the Nebraska State Patrol troopers in Troop B will have a new tool to assist in a wide variety of situations.
NSP has received a 2019 Can-Am Defender Max UTV from Curry Brothers Motorsports in Columbus. The UTV will be utilized for search and rescue, SWAT Team and Police Service Dog deployment, processing crime scenes in rural areas, and medivac missions.
This is the result of a user relations loan program through Curry Brothers which allows the dealership to lend a UTV to law enforcement agencies. The use of the UTV is for a 12-month term and is free of charge to NSP and the citizens of Nebraska.
When the current term of the agreement expires, the dealership will take the vehicle back into its inventory to be sold and will provide another unit to the Patrol. This allows NSP to provide better, safer, and more efficient service to Nebraskans with the help of local businesses committed to assisting with public safety.
The Cargill beef processing plant in Schuyler has also chipped in, providing financial assistance to NSP for the purchase of a trailer to transport the UTV to areas where it will be deployed.
