Troopers to travel to Minnesota this week
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.
It is unclear how many troopers will be temporarily stationed in Minnesota at this time. We’ll keep you updated as new details are released.
