he Nebraska State Patrol Carrier Enforcement Division has provided troopers and officers from more than a dozen other agencies with skills and knowledge to better serve their communities. Last week, NSP held a series of training sessions focused on multiple disciplines of commercial motor vehicles inspections.

“After the success of last year’s training sessions, we were proud to host another round this year,” said Lieutenant Mike Maytum, Commander of NSP Carrier Enforcement. “The training is built from what our troopers encounter in the field. Sharing that knowledge with troopers and officers from other agencies is a partnership that will help enforcement professionals better understand commercial vehicle crash dynamics, and work to prevent these high-profile crash events.”

NSP hosted training sessions last week at the NSP Training Academy in Grand Island. Troopers and officers from 13 law enforcement agencies from 11 different states took part in the training, along with representatives from the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance.

The training sessions provided both classroom and hands-on instruction in areas of forensic examination of commercial motor vehicles as well as completion of post-crash inspections of commercial motor vehicles. Participants conducted five different advanced Level-1 post-crash inspections throughout the week of training.

NSP was assisted in this program by many partners in the trucking industry, including the Nebraska Trucking Association, Crete Carrier, Chief Carriers, Lone Tree Towing and Recovery, Kramer’s Wrecker Service, Bendix Commercial Vehicle Systems, Great West Casualty Company, and the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, and the Nebraska Attorney General’s Office.
