LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) — Troopers with the Nebraska State Patrol (NSP) are traveling over 400 miles to Minnesota this week to assist local law enforcement agencies.

NSP received a request for assistance from the Emergency Management Assistant Compact, which is a partnership of state emergency management agencies.

The troopers will be in Minnesota while a jury deliberates on the fate of Derek Chauvin, the former Minneapolis police officer seen kneeling on George Floyd’s neck prior to his death.
