UNO Professor, FEARLESS Shine a Light on Nebraska Law Enforcement Practices

Vague state laws often open the door to local enforcement abuses.

There are wide variances in how state laws applying to Registered Citizens are enforced from county to county in Nebraska, according to research by Lisa Sample, PhD,  Reynolds Professor and Masters Program Coordinator at the School of Criminology and Criminal Justice at the University of Nebraska at Omaha.

Nebraska state laws on Registered Citizens do not make anyone safer (in fact they make communities more dangerous), and local enforcement practices are a patchwork of activities, some of which might be questioned on legal grounds.

Dr. Sample will present her findings at FEARLESS on Monday, April 18. Please join us for this informative session at 7 p.m. Monday, April 18, 2016 at Saint Michael Lutheran Church, 13232 Blondo Street, Omaha. We meet in the lower level — come in through the east entrance.
