NSP introduces a new mascot, Trooper Buck L. Up

Posted: Updated:

The newest member of the Nebraska State Patrol was officially introduced as Colonel David Sankey, Superintendent of the Nebraska State Patrol pinned a badge on the Agency's new mascot, Trooper Buck L. Up. The badging took place during a news conference at the Nebraska State Fair in Grand Island.

"We are very excited to unveil our new mascot," said Colonel David Sankey. "Trooper Buck will be used by our Troopers across the state promoting our agency's mission of saving lives on Nebraska roads".

Trooper Buck was created by Street Characters Inc., at a cost of $9,000 and was purchased for the agency by the Nebraska State Patrol Foundation, thanks to a grant from the Motorola Solutions Foundation.  He will join NSP's current inflatable mascot Trooper Ted, who debuted in 2004. 

The agency's Community Service Officers (CSO's) will manage Trooper Buck's schedule as they utilize his fun presence during safety presentations at community and organizational events across the state.

Colonel Sankey said, "From the detail on his uniform to his name, it is our hope Trooper Buck will engage the young and the young at heart, as we work to encourage everyone to wear their seat belt, every trip every time".
