LINCOLN, Neb. (KNOP) - The Nebraska State Patrol wins a nationwide contest as they were voted to have the "2019 America's Best-Looking Cruiser." The cruiser will be featured on the cover of the "2020 America's Best Looking Cruiser Calendar".
The Nebraska State Patrol (NSP) has claimed the top spot in this year’s Best-Looking Cruiser contest, organized by the American Association of State Troopers (AAST). The contest, which was decided by a vote of the public, included photos of cruisers from state and highway patrols across the entire country. (SOURCE: American Association of State Troopers)
Almost 400,000 people voted in the contest hosted by the American Association of State Troopers. The contest, which was decided by a vote of the public, included photos of cruisers from state and highway patrols across the entire country.
Trooper Clint Zost took the amazing photo on May 21, near Dawson, Nebraska. The twister did not cause any significant damage, but Trooper Zost was there to report it to emergency managers, who then activated warning sirens in the area. He then took a moment to snap a photo, which went viral on social media.
“We’d just like to say ‘thank you’ to everyone who voted for NSP in this year’s contest,” said Colonel John Bolduc, Superintendent of the Nebraska State Patrol. “Trooper Zost’s epic photo of his cruiser with a tornado in the background captured attention around the nation, but it also demonstrates that troopers are out in the elements, working to protect the public even when severe weather strikes.”
The 2020 Calendars will be available to purchase at www.statetroopers.org late in September 2019.
