AUGUST 3, 2020 (OMAHA, NEB.) — The Nebraska State Patrol (NSP) is streamlining the organization of several specialty divisions within NSP. The restructuring will add NSP specialties such as the Technical Crimes Division, Nebraska Information Analysis Center (NIAC), and others into the existing Special Operations Division.
The NSP Special Operations Division will now include the Aviation Support Division, SWAT, Technical Crimes, NIAC, Police Service Dog Division, Hazardous Device Technicians, and Emergency Preparedness. With the addition of several new areas of operation, Captain Jason Scott will now serve as the Special Operations Commander, overseeing the entire division.
Captain Scott, a 21-year veteran of NSP, has most recently served as commander of Troop A, based in Omaha. Throughout his career, Scott has served NSP is numerous capacities, including Patrol, Investigative Services, Carrier Enforcement, SWAT, Police Service Dogs, and the Commercial Interdiction Unit.
With the departure of Scott from Troop A, Captain Matt Sutter will take over as commander of the Omaha-based troop area. Sutter, a 13-year veteran of NSP, has most recently served as commander of NSP’s Professional Standards Division, based in Lincoln. Captain Sutter has previously served in Patrol, Executive Protection, and the Police Service Dog Division.
“This restructuring reflects the critical nature of the work performed by NSP’s specialty divisions,” said Colonel John Bolduc, Superintendent of the Nebraska State Patrol. “Captain Scott and Captain Sutter are proven leaders for our agency. Their wealth of experience in numerous aspects of NSP operations will serve them well in these new roles, and provide valuable leadership to the troopers diligently serving Nebraska every day.”
