In The Wake Of Protests; Reforms Within OPD

Jun 26, 2020

Omaha Mayor Jean Stothert and Chief of Police Todd Schmaderer are announcing changes within the city's police department.  Officers are now forbidden from using their knee to pin a person down by their neck.  They're also required to intervene and report when a fellow officer is not taking the appropriate actions.  The updated policy was announced yesterday.  Officer training will begin next month.
