Sarpy County has a new director for its 911 Center. Elkhorn’s Brad Rice, a 29-year veteran of the Nebraska State Patrol, has been named to the post.
Rice spent his last 10 years with NSP serving as a Captain and Troop B Commander in Norfolk. He retired in 2011.
Bellevue Police Chief Mark Elbert said, “I am pleased with the choice and look forward to working with him. He has a proven track record.”
