Death of OPD’s Oldest Retiree
Retired Officer Monroe Coleman passed away last night. He was the oldest living police retiree that is identified in the current pension payroll system. He retired as a Deputy Police Chief on 04/11/1984 after serving the citizens of Omaha for 36 years 7 months (hired 09/08/1947). A photo of him on the forth floor recognizes him as being the first African American to achieve the rank of Deputy Chief (date of photo unknown).
Please keep Monroe and his family in your thoughts and prayers.
