(Neb)-NSP Names New Western Operations Major
LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Nebraska State Patrol Superintendent Colonel John Bolduc has promoted Captain Mike Jahnke (YON-kee) to the rank of Major and placed him in command of Western Operations, which covers the western third of the state with Troop E based in Scottsbluff and Troop D in North Platte.
He succeeds Kyle Otte, who retired last Friday after 27 years with NSP. Otte was a lieutenant and captain in Troop E before being named Field Services major, a position that was replaced last year in a reorganization with 3 regional majors.
Jahnke has been with NSP for 25 years, most recently as the commander of the Professional Standards Division. Colonel Bolduc says Jahnke's "integrity, experience in Western Nebraska, and dedication to serving the public make him uniquely qualified for the position."
Throughout his career, Jahnke has worked in numerous positions within the Patrol including Field services, Executive Protection, Investigative Services, and Internal Affairs.
He began his career in Troop D, stationed in Lexington, and says he's "excited to return to the area" where his career began - adding that the agency is made up of dedicated public servants of all ranks and positions.
Promoted to captain in 2012, Jahnke holds a bachelor's degree in Public Administration from Doane University and is a graduate of the FBI National Academy, session #241, held in 2010.
