Cass County Sheriff’s Office Launches New Website

The Cass County Sheriff’s Office launched a new responsive Website on April 13, 2020, where residents can find the latest information regarding the operations of the Sheriff’s Office as well as locate area sex offenders.

The new Website will serve as an information resource for the public and assist with community policing efforts. The responsive design allows site visitors to access the information they want and need from any device with simple, flexible navigation.

The new Website,, features press releases, messages from Sheriff Brueggemann which are updated frequently, pages on the services of each division of the Sheriff’s Office, as well as a link to submit crime tips via email.

“Our goal with the website is to provide transparency between our office and the public. We want the public to understand how this office serves the community, residents, and visitors. We want our community members to have the information they need, when they need it. The responsive design allows users to quickly and conveniently access the Website information on the device of their choice: desktop, laptop, tablet, or smartphone. In addition, the responsive Website features a Site Search, which makes finding specific information much faster and easier for the site visitor,” said Sheriff Brueggemann.

Other features of the Website include:

Alert Notifications – allows the public to sign up for alert notifications from the Sheriff’s Office via email or text – including sex offender notifications, press releases, most wanted updates, and special alerts.

Most Wanted Listings – allows the public to view photos and descriptions of wanted individuals.

Press Releases – allows the public to view a list in date order, sorted by year, of press release and news items posted by the Sheriff’s Office.

Sex Offenders – allows the public to view photos and information for sex offenders living in the county. The interactive map feature on the Website allows the public to view sex offender locations on the map, view offender photos and profile information about the offenses.

Inmate Roster – allows the public to view photos and descriptions of individuals housed at the Cass County Jail. This does not include the Roster of Federal inmates or inmates housed for another agency.

“Posting information on the Website improves the efficiency of the Sheriff’s Office by reducing the number of inquiry calls handled by our office. This tool allows us to devote more resources to the safety and security of our residents. Our intent is for every County resident to visit the site and become familiar with how to locate sex offenders, how to submit a crime tip and where to find the latest news and updates from the Sheriff’s Office. We believe the Website is a huge benefit to the Sheriff’s Office and the residents of Cass County as well,” said Sheriff Brueggemann.

Brooks Jeffrey Marketing, Inc., a national Website, App, and marketing company headquartered in Mountain Home, Arkansas, developed the responsive website for Cass County Sheriff's Office. Brooks Jeffrey, founded in 1984, develops Websites, apps, and integrated marketing solutions for law enforcement, government offices, organizations, and businesses throughout the United States.

Coronavirus Update: Questions and Answers

Mar 26, 2020 

Given the rapidly changing dynamic in our country around coronavirus, I put together a list of answers to frequently asked questions about federal assistance for you, your family, and small business.

A major goal for the project, was to make small business support as convenient as possible. If you have a small business, you know that job one, is to make your businesses as simple, and convenient as possible to interact with.
The Corona $1200 checks, are starting to arrive this week. We know that some fortunate Nebraskans are not desperate and might consider helping struggling small businesses, Churches and Non-Profit organizations with a donation or better yet buying Gift Cards. We encourage restaurants, bars, basically any small businesses to get a Gift Card account from companies like Square. This is a convenient way for fortunate Nebraskan's to inject life saving cash into the business, in echange for Goods and Services later when the storm passes. None of this is possible, unless you add your business or Organization to free.

PCS Superintendent Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update-Apr. 10, 2020

Parents/Guardians/Patrons, Good afternoon. I hope our students, families, and staff members are enjoying this day that was a previously scheduled day off on our district calendar. A safe and healthy learning environment continues to be a top priority for our students, staff members, Board, and our community. If we are diligent with implementing steps to prevent the spread of COVID-19, I believe we can all help “flatten the curve” together. Check out our information page at that includes helpful tips about preventing the spread of COVID-19.

On April 1, 2020, Governor Ricketts issued a Directed Health Measure ( that stated schools statewide were directed to operate without students in their buildings through May 31, 2020.  Extracurricular activities were also cancelled statewide. That being said, we will not have classes, activities or events at our buildings until after at least May 31, 2020.


This is a very special time of year for our students, particularly our seniors. Therefore, we still want to honor and recognize their accomplishments this year. The recognition might look a little different than in the past.

Accordingly, Board President Ken Winters, high school principal Todd Halvorsen, and I met with the student advisory board (including four seniors that are former student advisory board members) this week to discuss possible alternatives for graduation, prom, and other events. Our initial discussion was very productive with the student advisory board. They provided valuable input.

We are currently exploring possibilities for a virtual graduation on the original commencement date of May 9, 2020. We are researching options for this potential event.

In addition to a possible virtual graduation on May 9, we identified potential dates to have a traditional, face-to-face commencement where students walk and receive their diplomas. The first potential date for this event is Saturday, June 27, with a back-up date of July 25. The extent to which we will be able to hold a traditional commencement where students walk and receive their diplomas will be dependent upon health measures that are in place at that time.

Please keep in mind that the traditional, walking commencement is in addition to a potential virtual graduation ceremony. So, it is possible that we might have two events to honor our seniors. We would likely have practices for students on the days before each of these events. We are going to continue discussion with the student advisory board next week about graduation, prom, and other events. I plan to have more information in the April 17, 2020 update.


Thank you to our students, parents, and staff members for their high levels of engagement in the remote learning environment. It is great to have everyone remain connected to continue our learning. I believe the graphic above reflects the essence of our continuity of learning plan that is available at

Due to the great leadership of our Board of Education, administrators, teachers, and non-certified staff members, we have a quality plan to continue learning in a remote environment for the remainder of the school year. We will continue to review the plan and update it, as needed, for our students. Please be patient with our dedicated professionals.

Grading remains an ongoing topic of discussion. I received information today that the Nebraska Department of Education plans to issue additional guidance next week. Stay tuned for the April 17, 2020 update and more information about grading.

Nonetheless, our dedicated professionals are implementing the learning plan to support students for advancement to the next grade level. Seniors that were on track for graduation should remain on that path, with support from our educators. Seniors that were not on track for graduation will have support available to assist them with getting on track for graduation. If you have questions or comments about the remote learning plans for your children, please contact the building principals where your children attend school.


The Plattsmouth Community Schools and OPAA! continue to provide Grab-N-Go breakfasts and lunches at no charge for any child in a household from birth to age 18 regardless of income. Meals are being distributed by the sidewalk near the front entrance of Plattsmouth Middle School at 1724 8th Ave. It is a drive-thru service each Monday from 6:30 AM to 9:00 AM, 11:00 AM to 1:00 PM, and 4:00 PM to 7:00 PM. Last week, we distributed 5560 meals to children!

In an effort to increase safety, we are implementing some new measures for handing out the food to families. If possible, when you drive up for your food, we would like to place your food in a trunk or an empty back seat. This will aid in maintaining a 6-foot distance between people. If there is not a trunk or empty back seat available, you might be asked to grab your food from a table. Then, the volunteers plan to wipe down the table before the next customer. Please be patient with our food service volunteers.

To help us get an accurate meal count, if you need food assistance, please complete the survey at this link ( The survey only needs to be completed one time per household. The survey does not need to be completed every week. If you are unable to complete the survey online, please call 402-296-3361 and provide the necessary information.


Our school social workers prepared a message that includes tips for coping with COVID-19. Go to and read their message.

If you or someone you know needs assistance with water, food, or other supplies, please contact the school social worker at the building where your child attends school.

With your support, our bond issue passed in May of 2019. Our Board of Education approved a proposal from Lund-Ross Constructors for some high school projects. Lund-Ross Constructors started construction of our high school skilled and technical sciences building addition. There is also heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) work being done at our middle school. At the April meeting, our Board of Education will be considering proposals for projects at our early childhood center and proposals for projects at our elementary school/middle school.


I am thankful for our dedicated students, families, staff members, Board of Education, and our entire community! With your support, we are successfully navigating uncharted waters. Trust that our students are in good hands with our dedicated professionals.

We have a resilient community with residents that continue to unite and support one another, during this unique COVID-19 environment. I believe this situation will make us even better together. Thank you for your support of our students, staff members, families, Board members, and our entire community. We remain #PLATTSMOUTHSTRONG!

Best regards,


Superintendent Dr. Richard E. Hasty
