The volunteer program has evolved from each unit handling its own recruiting and staffing to the present program.


In 1995, the City of Omaha was awarded the COPS-MORE grant from the federal government. The purpose of the grant was to return sworn officers, who were fulfilling administrative positions that volunteers could handle, to the streets and police work.


This gave the department an opportunity to expand the support services for its employees and the community. The grant also gave the people in the community a better opportunity for involvement and provides more services for the Police Department.


If you are interested in volunteering at the Omaha Police Department, contact the Coordinator of Volunteer Services at (402) 444-3598 or complete the appropriate application below and return it to OPD.
