The Omaha Police Department has 53 new officers. A swearing-in ceremony was held this morning at the Scott Conference Center in Omaha.
Police Chief Todd Schmaderer told the new officers, “Take care of yourself mentally and psychology because you are going to see some things in this job. You are going to see society at its worse. You are going to see very messy situations.” He also went on to say that the new officers will get a real chance to make a difference toward bettering society.
The new officers just completed a 22 week training course. Next is a fifteen week field training officer course.
