Policies and Procedures Manual
The Omaha Police
Department Policies and Procedures Manual are provided for reference. ¬†In
order to maintain high levels of professional conduct, policies and procedures are
established to provide both guidance and serve as a reference to employees of
the Department. It is the responsibility of each employee of the Department to
follow the policies and procedures set forth within the manual. However, it is
understood that law enforcement is dynamic and it is not possible to anticipate
every circumstance that may confront an employee.
The manual provides
internal guidance for employees of the Omaha Police Department. It does not
increase an employee‚Äôs civil or criminal liability in any way. The policies and
procedures are not to be construed as the creation of a higher standard of
performance, safety or duty of care in any evidentiary sense with respect to
third party plaintiffs. Violations of the Policies and Procedures Manual, if
proven, shall only form the basis of internal administrative action by the
Chief of Police.
The Omaha Police Department reserves the right
to not publicly post any policies that are considered sensitive or tactical in
nature. The Policies and Procedures Manual is being completely revised and
updated so additional portions will be posted to this website as sections are
completed. ¬†Links within the public version are not active as they are
part of internal sites which contain information that is temporary, tactical,
or confidential. ¬†The Omaha Police Department appreciates your patience as
we complete this project.
