Gift to Aid Memorial Fund

The family of a Lincoln Police officer is giving a special gift to Omaha's Police department.

Vicki Bourg died at the age of 40 after a long battle with cancer and on Tuesday her family gave Vicki's horse, Skinny, to Omaha's Mounted Patrol Unit.

Her husband, Jesse Roberts, says he hopes the gift raises awareness about a memorial fund meant to help at-risk youth.

He said, “Some of her last words were ‘remember me’ and I think doing this will help us with money for scholarship fund."

Skinny will undergo tests and training before Omaha Police take him out on the streets.
