Police remind Husker fans to be safe this Saturday

Downtown Lincoln and nearby neighborhoods will be brimming with Husker fans this Saturday.  Lincoln Police are reminding fans to keep safety in mind while enjoying the game.

The Lincoln Police Department wants to remind citizens of several city ordinances that help to maintain peace and order.

Drinking in Public: in or on the public streets, alleys, parking areas, roads or highways within the city.

Drinking in Vehicle: inside vehicles while upon the public streets, alleys, parking areas, roads or highways.

Open Container: vehicle to possess an open alcoholic beverage container while the motor vehicle is located in or on the public streets, alleys, parking areas, roads, or highways within the city.

Littering: or other public place within the city except in public receptacles, in authorized private receptacles for collection, or in official city dumps.

Officers in Northwest Lincoln will be active in the North Bottoms neighborhood, watching for violations. Historically, this area, just north of Memorial Stadium, has been the location of complaints.

Please, keep these ordinances in mind when attending gatherings and while participating in downtown events. We want to encourage a safe and successful football season.
