Bellevue Police Ofc. Shaun Manning searches a driver’s information during a traffic stop while the operation does speed enforcement. “I’m going to run her plates. I don’t always run every single plate but for this one I will because she could not provide me an insurance card, so if it’s indicated on the registration that they had valid insurance at the time when they registered the vehicle I’ll consider it,” Manning said.

Several officers, deputies, and troopers run traffic stops for the Sarpy County Traffic Safety Task Force as part of a combined effort to reduce fatalities and crashes. “To see all those cars from different agencies out of their jurisdiction. Definitely a positive thing. We work together all the time, you name it. From investigation to traffic to special events,” Bellevue Police Sgt. Larry Lampman said.

The task force focuses on the main problems in the county and hopes to educate the public. “The main issue that we see is overall inattention that leads to violation of traffic law. Whether the distraction is physical, visual, or cognitive, distraction/inattention is causing people to not watching their speed, miss traffic signals, and strike other vehicles,” Sarpy County Sheriff Sgt. Kyle Percifield said.
