The Lancaster County Sheriff’s Office will increase the number of deputies working during the hours of 6:00 A.M. to 10:00 PM starting Monday, April 01, 2024, and ending Sunday, April 07, 2024.  The additional deputies will patrol in marked patrol cars and concentrate their efforts on distracted driving violations which specifically include the use of handheld wireless communication devices.     

Overtime for the additional deputies working during the crackdown will be paid through a mini-grant funded by the Nebraska Department of Transportation Highway Safety Office.
