Jun 9, 2020

Omaha city leaders are discussing police reform.  City Councilman Ben Gray says there should not be a cookie-cutter approach when it comes to reform, and officials must consider options that would best serve Omaha.  City Councilwoman Aimee Melton says police leadership has worked to improve the department.  Melton noted that de-funding the police department and making wholesale changes could set Omaha back in its progress.

Meanwhile, Omaha police are looking for video evidence of criminal activity.  The police department says officers are investigating incidents of criminal activity that took place during recent protests. Anyone who has video evidence of any incidents is asked to submit it to investigators.
