NEBRASKA CITY – Mayor Bryan Bequette introduced new Nebraska City police officer Dean DuVall Jr. at Monday’s council meeting.

DuVall is a former graduate of Nebraska City High School. He studied education and criminal justice at Central Christian College of Kansas. He worked in corrections in Lincoln and Tecumseh and was most recently a sheriff’s deputy in Kimball County.

After eight years working in corrections, he expects the experience to help him motivate people not to end up there.

He introduced members of his family attending the meeting. His sister pinned on his badge.
