March 1, 1867 Nebraska became the 37th state. On October 8, 1867 Lincoln County, Nebraska elected their 1st Sheriff. The mission of our Sheriff's Department states that they are here to preserve peace in Lincoln County by serving our citizens with the highest level of public safety. CASA thanks the Sheriff's Department for all of their hard work. Come out and see them round up our "villains" on April 2nd at our SuperHero 5k and Villain Chase (registrations on our website or contact us) .
