A Lincoln man has been named as the state's new executive director of the Commission on Law Enforcement and Criminal Justice.

Gov. Dave Heineman Friday announced the appointment of Darrell Fisher to head up the Nebraska Crime Commission.

The 57-year-old Fisher is originally from Arapahoe and served 29 years with the Nebraska State Patrol. He retired from the agency in 2008 as a lieutenant colonel.

Since that time Fisher has worked as an instructor at the Nebraska Office of Highway Safety, as adjunct faculty at the Institute of Police Technology and Management – University of North Florida, and as an Impaired Driving Assessor for the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

"I very much appreciate the Governor's confidence in my experience and abilities," said Fisher. "I will work diligently to ensure that confidence. I am anxious to begin this new challenge."

Fisher will take over the position on January 2, following the retirement of Michael Behm.

The Crime Commission serves in a leadership role by providing expertise, technical assistance, training, financial aid, enforcement of mandatory jail standards and regulations, as well as research, evaluation, statistical services and informational resources to criminal and juvenile justice programs statewide.
