FBI Omaha division speaks on domestic terrorism
by Lauren Kummer
KEARNEY, Neb. — Two special agents from the FBI Omaha Division made a stop in Kearney on Tuesday to talk about domestic terrorism and other topics.
The FBI said domestic terrorism does in fact happen in central Nebraska.
Although they do everything they can to obtain information to prevent attacks, it 's the "see something, say something" that helps in many cases.
Tuesday's event was the very first for the Kearney Police and Buffalo County Sheriff's Citizen's Police Academy Alumni Association.
Elected officials, alumni of the citizen's police academy and law enforcement members gathered to learn more about law enforcement at the federal level.
Organizers for the seminar said this was important because of recent events around the United States.
"We wanted to have a topic that was timely and unfortunately nationwide, there have been nationwide some recent domestic terrorism attacks. We thought this was appropriate to have. It's not that we're fearful that something is going to happen in central Nebraska but we do still have to be concerned about it," said the alumni association's president Richard McGinnis.
