Investigator Lisa Citta with the North Platte Police Department and Owner of Snowball Express joins us on today’s episode to explain a bit about her job and our community. More and more women are breaking glass ceilings in the police field. Lisa’s work has recently been spotlighted in the news as she was part of our local department's first all-women patrol shift!
From an early age, Lisa knew she wanted to be a police officer. After college, she was hired at North Platte and worked as the only woman on the team for a while. Education has always been a big part of her career and is a few weeks away from receiving her Master’s Degree in Law Enforcement and Public Safety Leadership.
Lisa enjoys law enforcement because every day is different and she gets to actively talk to people in the community. In North Platte, the police department has strong community support making her love for her job that much easier. On the side, she has a passion project with Snowball Express, allowing her to connect with our community in another way as well.
Join us today as we get into these topics:
· What the average day and event days look like for an investigator and officer.
· Lisa’s experience running Snowball Express.
· How Lisa and Nebraskaland help people with identity theft crimes.
