Police in America. I know what it’s about, I know the history that got us here, I’ve reported on it, worked on it and know there is a lot for us to do…

We need more accountability from our police force. Make it an organization that better reflects the ethnic and racial make-up of the neighborhoods they work in, which can be instrumental in fostering better relations.

This also includes a more rigorous testing process to select better candidates and a well-rounded, better training regimen for applicants. But I have to be thankful for our Police Chief Todd Schmaderer and OPD command staff for being open and receptive to the work that is still ahead of us…

This is the conversation we gotta have every day.

These are problems we gotta solve towards a better City of Omaha.
