LINCOLN — The union that represents Nebraska state troopers agreed Tuesday to postpone its formal complaint about the state's troubled emergency radio system in an attempt to informally work out a solution with the state.
A representative of the State Troopers Association of Nebraska (STAN) said that troopers still lack confidence in the $17.3 million system but are willing to explore if it can be fixed and not replaced.
