The Nebraska State Patrol (NSP) is pleased to announce that Captain Martin Denton has been named Commander of the NSP Carrier Enforcement Division. Captain Denton succeeds Captain Dan Doggett, who retired on June 30, after a 34-year career with NSP.
“Captain Denton has a strong track record as a leader in many areas of our agency,” said Colonel John Bolduc, Superintendent of the Nebraska State Patrol. “His many years in leadership positions, wealth of knowledge as an instructor of several disciplines, and his connections with NSP personnel throughout the state will be great assets to the Carrier Enforcement team.”
Captain Denton has been with NSP since 1996, starting his career based in Kimball. He has since served in leadership capacities in several communities including Holdrege, Scottsbluff, North Platte, and most recently in statewide positions in Process Improvement and as supervisor of the NSP Supply Division. Denton is a certified Drug Recognition Expert, has been a member of the NSP SWAT Team, and has served as an instructor for Range, Drug Recognition, and DUI Enforcement.
“I’m eager to join the talented Carrier Enforcement team,” said Captain Denton. “The troopers,
investigators, and civilian teammates of Carrier Enforcement do tremendous work in every corner of our state. This statewide division is dedicated to working collaboratively with our partners in the trucking industry to keep commerce moving safely and efficiently, as well as working to keep Nebraska roads safe for all motorists.”
Captain Denton is a 2018 graduate of the Northwestern University School of Police Staff and Command. He also holds a Bachelor of Science Degree in Education from Chadron State College.
