Bolduc to Nebraska

By Karen Robes Meeks

John Bolduc, the Vice President of Public Safety and Police Chief at the Port of San Diego, will serve as the next Nebraska State Patrol Superintendent.

Bolduc, 52, will oversee 170 team members with a $38 million annual budget. His first day on the job will be on October 16.

“The State Patrol has a long and distinguished history with troopers that have served with honor and integrity, and John will protect and build that tradition,” said Nebraska Gov. Pete Ricketts. “John comes to the agency with a reputation for improving organizations. He has the integrity and the experience to drive continuous improvement throughout the State Patrol and lead the organization with the unimpeachable integrity Nebraskans expect.”

Bolduc started his law enforcement career as an officer in 1986 and was chief of police for Brainerd and Mora in Minnesota.

During his seven-year tenure at the Port of San Diego, Bolduc developed a partnership between Harbor Police and the State Department to train overseas law enforcement in port security. He teamed up with the Alpha Project to connect the homeless living on the waterfront with services, among other accomplishments.
