Letter from Chief of Police

On behalf of the men and women of the Papillion Police Department, welcome to our website!

Our current staffing authorizations include 40 sworn officers and 5 civilian employees.  Located within the Omaha metro area, we serve and protect over 18,000 citizens.  In 2014, our officers generated or provided response to over 21,000 calls for service.  While many other departments throughout the country have resorted to telephone or website incident reporting, we still provide a  human response to all requests.  Our highest priority is to employ 21st Century policing technology and tactics without shedding our "neighborhood cop" identity.  To do this, we strive to hire and retain the best people available.

We are proud of our achievements related to community policing, including participation in Neighborhood Watch Associations, DARE Programs, full-time assignment of School Resource Officers, domestic violence and child abuse response teams and over 35 formal partnerships with businesses, schools, and other area law enforcement agencies. But our bread and butter still lies with the day-to-day functions of our patrol and detective staffs, whose primary focus is crime prevention, problem-solving, and when necessary, apprehension and arrest.

Our Mission and Value statements, as created by our officers, best exemplify our ongoing police department goals:

Mission Statement:

The Papillion Police Department will strive to foster a safe community by responding to crime, addressing community concerns related to safety, and maintaining an effective presence throughout Papillion.

Value Statement:

The Papillion Police Department will achieve its mission by building on officer and community strengths and holding itself accountable for efficiency, competency, and problem solving with honesty, empathy, and fairness.

Although our citizenry should not expect us to prevent or solve all crimes, they should demand and can expect our best effort when police services are requested or needed. I invite you to stop by, send a letter, or e-mail me if you have any suggestions on how we can better serve the community.

Department Motto:

Policing With Pride
