About this event

Premiere screening of NET’s new documentary Small Town Cops with NET Producer Bill Kelly and Q&A with local law enforcement.


Today’s small town cop must prepare for any situation facing a big city officer. Small Town Cops, a new NET News documentary, considers the changing role of police work in Nebraska’s small towns and rural areas. Even in the safest communities where everyone knows everyone else, police are trained to prepare for school shootings, encountering drug smugglers, and facing an increasing number of calls involving mental illness. In Small Town Cops, experienced and newly-trained officers explain what’s changed and why they still believe in serving their communities and keeping them safe.

Featured departments: Mitchell, NE Police Department (in Scotts Bluff County), Butler County and Jefferson County Sheriff’s Departments. Also featured: the Nebraska Law Enforcement Training Center in Grand Island where all officers and deputies are certified for active duty.


This event is a part of the "On the Road with NET" trip. For more information on all of NET's stops this Spring, visit
