The Nebraska State Patrol took the top spot in the American Association of State Troopers (AAST) online photo contest as they were voted to have the “2019 America’s Best-Looking Cruiser.”

Trooper Clint Zost snapped the winning photo that will be featured on the cover of the “2020 America’s Best Looking Cruiser Calendar”. The photo of Trooper Zost competed against entries from every state and won the popular vote.

Trooper Zost took the amazing photo near Dawson, Nebraska, on May 21. Trooper Zost was in the area to report a tornado touchdown to emergency managers, who then activated warning sirens in the area. The photo quickly went viral on social media.

“We’d just like to say ‘thank you’ to everyone who voted for NSP in this year’s contest,” said Colonel John Bolduc, Superintendent of the Nebraska State Patrol.

“Trooper Zost’s epic photo of his cruiser with a tornado in the background captured attention around the nation, but it also demonstrates that troopers are out in the elements, working to protect the public even when severe weather strikes.”
