Community Update – Captain Anthony Butler, LPD
Captain Butler gave the group some stats on activity in north Lincoln. For the northwest team, year to date there are 553 more calls compared with last year. Captain Butler detailed a few of those calls which had gun play involved. The incidents don’t seem to be related to each other except for the fact narcotics are involved. There have been a couple of incidents involving assaults towards the end of September. They may be related to the same group of individuals.
Assistant Chief Pat Borer – City of Lincoln Fire and Rescue Department
Assistant Chief Borer started with an update on the new fire stations being built. There are currently 4 new fire stations built or being built. Pat was excited to say all the stations are coming in on budget. These were funded by the ¼ cent sales tax that just ended. The City as appropriated $3.5 million towards new fire trucks. The department has ordered 7 new fire trucks with that money. On average a fire truck lasts about 15 years on front line status and then another 5 years in reserve status. Pat also spoke about the fire departments strategic plan. He handed out info on the initiatives and started by polling the group on their satisfaction with the fire department. Pat spoke to the group about a few of these initiatives.
