Lincoln County law enforcement receives national recognition
NORTH PLATTE, Neb. (KNOP) - In honor of National Crime Victim’s Rights Week Lincoln County government officials were recognized by the National Crime Victim’s Rights Community Awareness Project, under the Office of Justice, for their hard work in comforting victims of crime.
The organization planted a lilac tree and two bushes outside the Lincoln County courthouse to honor the victims of crime. They also handed out awards to the local sheriff’s office, police department, and county attorneys office.
The organization has given a grant to Lincoln County to reward law enforcement and prosecutors for their exceptionalism in making sure that victims of crimes are taken care of. Victims of crime in Lincoln County wrote in statements thanking law enforcement that were read at the ceremony.
“I can’t believe the police caught him. I thought they had given up, but 4 years later they caught him. Thank you.”
“The lady cop was wonderful with my child. Very compassionate and kind.”
“I’m alive because the deputy arrived in time to stop my assailant as he had just broken in my door. I’m thankful for the deputy.”
