The Omaha Police Department is taking additional precautions to keep our citizens and officers safe as our community deals with the Coronavirus (COVID-19). Starting Tuesday, March 24, 2020, all of the Front Desks at our precincts will be closed.  The Front Desk at Central Police Headquarters, 505 South 15th Street, will remain open daily but the hours and services available will change. The hours will be 8 am-4 pm. Fingerprinting services will not be available. If you need a file a report for a non-emergency incident please call 402-444-4877.

Copies of police reports can be requested in writing to 505 South  15th Street, Attention: Records Manager, Omaha, Nebraska, 68102 or purchased in person at Central Police Headquarters daily from 8 am-4pm. If a report is requested in writing, please include the report number and a $5 check or money order made out to the Omaha Police Department. Accident Reports can be requested on-line and paid with a Visa, MasterCard or E-Check. There is a convenience fee.

The department has created a call center that will be located at the West Precinct, 20924 Cumberland Drive and will start taking calls tomorrow at 10 am. Citizens are encouraged to call 402-444-4877 to make any non-emergency reports. If a citizen calls 911 for a non-emergency, the 911 dispatcher will re-route the call to the call center which will handle most priority 3, 4 and 5 calls. Examples of these lower priority calls range from an assault report where the suspect is not present, auto theft report and theft from vehicle report. The call center will be staffed with sworn and non-sworn personnel.

We appreciate the community working with us as we deal with the Coronavirus pandemic. We like many other organizations are taking necessary steps to protect our employees and the community. We will get through this together.
