Lincoln Police increase enforcement to reduce underage drinking at Huskers football games


Lincoln Police Department's Northwest Team hopes to decrease illegal behavior at home football games.

To do so, the team is coordinating an underage drinking/party project to coincide with the return of school and the start of Huskers football season.

Additional officers will be utilized to increase enforcement in an effort to reduce the amount of illegal activity occurring in and around the football stadium during home football games.

The dates of the project are as follows:

  • Sept. 2 – Nebraska Cornhuskers vs. Arkansas State
  • Sept. 16 – Nebraska Cornhuskers vs. NIU
  • Sept. 23 – Nebraska Cornhuskers vs. Rutgers

Funding for the increased enforcement will be provided by the Nebraska Office of Highway Safety.
