Since 1934, there has been an organization dedicated to representing the professional men and women of the Omaha Police Department who protect and serve Omaha. Over the years, although the names may have changed, the commitment to excellence in service has remained the same. Today, that organization is known as the Omaha Police Officers Association.

The Omaha POA’s goal is to professionally represent the over 900 sworn peace officers that comprise the Omaha Police Department.

In order to achieve this goal, the OPOA strives to promote a high level of commitment to public safety and professionalism within the ranks of the OPD via an emphasis on education, legal support, community outreach and trust building.

So that the citizens of Omaha may enjoy an exceptional level of police protection by attracting and retaining the best and brightest police officers, balanced with a focus on the responsible use of tax dollars, the OPOA strives to ensure that the wages of OPD officers are competitive to those being paid to officers in similar cities facing similar crime and danger. This means that the OPOA is dedicated to ensuring that OPD officers salaries do not slip below, or rise above, the average of that paid to officers in similar cities. This approach is fair to hard working officers and taxpayers alike.

Omaha faces many challenges. With big city crime and the challenges of dangerous gang activity and violence comes the need to maintain a highly professional police force. The Omaha POA is committed to partnering with our community and city leaders to make Omaha a safer place and maintain it as a great city to live, work and raise a family.

In honor of Earth Day we whole heartedly encourage everyone to get out and do what they can to clean up our community. Having a clean community improves the lives of everyone as they are out and about daily.

But, we must warn you. If you turn into “Recyclopse” the Omaha Police Department will most likely be forced to arrest you. So don’t show up anywhere declaring your revenge to destroy the planet you once loved. Don’t show up wielding a samurai sword. An finally, don’t show up yelling “Recyclopse destroy” while tearing around throwing trash everywhere.

***Warning Disturbingly Disrespectful Footage***

We recently have become aware of this footage from the Vermont State Troopers. What is shown here, is blatantly disrespectful.

When did it become OK in our society for children to treat a sworn officer, upholding the law, doing their duty with honor and courage in this manner. We as a society should NOT say this is OK. We as a society need to ensure that these children and their parents are held accountable for raising them to reach this point in their short lives.

We pray and hope that State Trooper Farva can make a full recovery and be removed from his desk duty and allowed back on the road doing what he swore to do, protect & serve.

Shenanigans!!

Super Troopers

I wonder how many people know that this is a movie.. some angry faces up there lol

Hahaa

I think this is from the movie super troopers......

Super Troopers is one of mine and my husband’s favorite movies!

Super troopers people don't take things on face value

We need to see the whole video to get context. A quick google search shows Officer Farva has been reprimanded on numerous occasions, for everything from hazing new officers to assaulting a teenage fast food worker. He is obviously deranged. And don’t call him Radio.

Super troopers! Love that film

He wants a GD Liter of cola!!!

He could have shot them. For there actions.

Go car Ramrod!

I heard that this is the same man who put a bar of soap in someone else's coffee. He shouldn't have ever been allowed to become an officer.

Car 23 car 23 do you need my assistance?

No way this stirs the pot.....is that technically a pun?

Well thank goodness he didn’t mistake that liquid for a gun

Andrew Startzer 😂

Fake, fake, fake!!!!!

Lollllll

I needed a good laugh, thanks guys!! 😎

...There are actually people who think this is real and are “so upset” about how this “brave officer of the law” was treated by those kids...😳 God bless the hearts of those people 😂😂

😂😂😂😂SUPER TROOPERS!!!!! 😂😂😂😂😂

For those who don't know ... Super Trooper's.

As most of you lay down and finish tucking your loved ones to bed tonight, the Gilchrist County Sheriff's Office is left picking up the pieces after losing Sgt Noel Ramirez and Deputy Taylor Lindsey.

Sgt Ramirez and Deputy Lindsey were sitting down in a restaurant eating, they were ambushed through a window from the coward suspect outside. The suspect then reportedly took his own life.

We can’t begin to put into words the pain, strife, and fear that this news brings to the law enforcement community across the country. But what you can count on, is Officers all over will continue to strap on their vests. Continue to go out and answer calls going into the unknown.

Please keep the families, fellow officers, and Gilchrist community in your thoughts and prayers in the days to come.

We have the watch from here brothers. Rest In Peace.

heartbreaking :'( ... praying for those left behind <3

Prayers

This hurts. I just thanked a NSP officer that was having lunch the other day. Walked up and thanked him and said stay safe out there. Eating lunch and their life is ended? For what? For wearing a badge. For doing their job and then wanting some Chinese food. They are then gunned down by some POS. New rule at my lunch time. I see an officer at lunch no more coming in and leaving, I’m sitting near them with my back to them and watching their 6 till they leave.

Just awful! We thank them for their service.

My heart won't let my mind imagine the depth of sadness that their family, friends and fellow Law enforcement officers are feeling. Sincere Condolences to all.

What has society become when Law Enforcement needs a safe space just to enjoy a meal... Good Lord people!

Praying for these heros families! My heart hurts for them.

RIP officers

This is just horrendous beyond words! My heart goes out to their families and friends.

🙏🏼

😓my heart just aches at how terrible our precious country has become. God please help us.

Dear God, May you bring comfort and strength to their families.

Prayers for their families!

So sad! Prayers for the families.

Heart Breaking , praying for their loved ones, and all who continue to put their lives at risk for our safety .

RIP!!!

Officers from the Columbus, OH PD arrived just in time to safely intervene with a suicidal teenager who was attempting to jump from a bridge.

The dramatic body cam footage shows just how crucial seconds can be when responding and how a moments hesitation can mean the difference between life or death.

We hope that the teenager involved was able to get started down a path to realizing the help they need and improving their life moving forward from this moment.
