Two new Nebraska City police officers were sworn in at the Monday, Feb. 4, Nebraska City City Council meeting. In introducing officers Dylan Lazure and George Horner, Nebraska City Mayor Bryan Bequette noted that his father was a police officer. "It's a calling," said Bequette, "and it's not like other jobs." George Horner, 23, earned a degree in criminal justice with a minor in international studies at UNL. He previously worked at a Lancaster County detention facility. "I'm excited to be here, and I look forward to serving the residents of Nebraska City, " Horner said at Monday's council meeting. Horner's mother, Claudia, pinned on his badge after he was sworn in.
Dylan Lazure, 24, has a criminal justice degree from Iowa Western. He attended Nebraska City High School. Lazure said he applied about four years ago and considered it "worth the wait" to be part of the NCPD now. "I got what I wanted out of it all," he said at Monday's council meeting. Lazure's wife, Alisha, pinned on his badge after he was sworn in.
