Officer Shellbach Memorial Street Sign Unveiling

Schellbach Dr Sign

Please join us at 9 a.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 12th, for the unveiling of a memorial street sign which is being installed in honor of fallen Lincoln Police Department Officer Leslie “Les” Schellbach.

The new memorial street signs will replace the current standard street signs on the 47th anniversary of Officer Schellbach’s tragic death. Officer Schellbach was killed December, 12th, 1971, when he engaged three armed robbers who had just shot a Lincoln Police Sergeant. The Sergeant survived his injuries but Officer Schellbach did not.

An exact replica of the street signs will be presented to Officer Schellbach’s family at the event.

The ceremony will begin promptly at 9 a.m. on the corner of Schellbach Drive and Countryside Drive in Lincoln.
