Omaha’s new Police Chief says staffing and infrastructure are the two areas he’s planning for long-term.

Three community advocates are asking the Department of Justice to look in to the findings revealed in a gang assessment report.

The president of the Omaha Police Officers Association says the city made the right decision choosing an internal candidate as the new Police Chief.

Dr. Pete Simi, Associate Professor and Dr. Dennis Hoffman, Professor both work in the School of Criminology at UNO. 

Omaha's new Police Chief will be sworn-in Wednesday evening.

A 17 year veteran of the Omaha Police Department is the new Police Chief.

The 4th of July is over and the Omaha Police Department is offering individuals the opportunity to turn in leftover fireworks this weekend.

The Metro Area Fireworks and Gun Amnesty day will take place this Saturday from 9:00 to 3:00 at two locations: Ambassador Worship Center, 103rd and Fort Streets and Seymour Smith Park, at 72nd and Harrison Streets.  OPD Sgt. Matt Manhart says guns, ammunition and fireworks will be accepted at both locations with no questions asked. 

The city of Omaha has announced the four finalists for Police Chief.

A nationwide search for Police Chief candidates was conducted following the retirement of Alex Hayes. Two finalists are from within the department. One is Captain Gregory Gonzalez. He’s Southwest Precinct Commander and an Acting Deputy Chief.

The other is Deputy Police Chief Todd Schmaderer, who oversees the Uniform Patrol Bureau operations and budget.
