LINCOLN -- The new security director for Lincoln Public Schools is a Lincoln cop. Capt. Joe Wright has worked with the Lincoln Police Department since 1986. He tells KFOR NEWS his skills in threat assessment will serve him well and help in looking for behaviors in people that indicate they have an issue which they may need help with in their lives and go in a safe direction. Over 60 applications came in following the retirement of Bill Kuehn, the only security director LPS has ever had. Wright begins his new job July 1.
