Two long time members of the Nebraska State Patrol will be retiring at the end of the year.

The agency announced Tuesday that Captains Mike Kerby and Jim Parish will both wrap up their roles on December 31.

The 57-year-old Kerby has served as commander of the NSP Training Academy in Grand Island since 2004 and been with the Nebraska State Patrol for 35 years.

"As commander of the Training Academy and as an expert in defensive tactics and police service dogs, Mike has had the opportunity to touch many lives," said Colonel David Sankey, NSP superintendent. "We will miss his quick wit, his vast knowledge and unwavering commitment to the agency and the people it serves."                                    

Parish has spent 36 years with the agency, beginning in Lincoln and eventually serving as commander of the NSP Troop D Headquarters in North Platte.

"Through his work with the Nebraska State Patrol and his involvement in the community, Jim has devoted his career to serving the citizens of Nebraska," said Sankey. "His dedication, knowledge and compassion will be greatly missed."

The 58-year-old Parish has been the commander of Troop D in North Platte since January 1996.
