How does he feel about becoming sergeant?

“I’m excited about it,” he said. Learning is always fun, and in his 14 years with the Police Department, “I’ve had multiple positions. So I’m ready for the challenge and something new.”

From 2008 to 2014, Slizoski worked as a night shift patrol officer. The next two years, he was a day shift patrol officer. From 2016 to now, he was assigned to the Central Nebraska Drug and Safe Streets Task Force.

He and his wife have three children.
