Omaha Arrest, Court, and Public Records

What are Omaha Public Records?

In compliance with Nebraska's Public Records Law, Omaha public records include all data and information created, maintained, or otherwise used by government agencies in carrying out their official duties. Under the law, tax-supported districts that are not cities, villages, counties, or political subdivisions are also public agencies and must make their records public. The law describes these records as all documents and data regardless of physical form. This means that public records include printouts, discs, and tapes, as well as data maintained on electronic storage devices. However, note that the Nebraska Public Records Law provides that the following are confidential and not accessible by the general public:

  • Medical records apart from birth and death records
  • Trade secrets
  • Unpublished academic and scientific research records
  • Physical location of cyber assets, infrastructure, and identity of personnel with knowledge of infrastructure locations and utility
  • Records of certain materials acquired from nongovernmental bodies solely for exhibition, research, or reference

Omaha Crime Statistics

The Omaha Police Department (OPD) provides statistics on crimes committed within the city through an annual report. Each report includes details on individual crimes, the number of arrests, and the number of cleared offenses. Numbers published in the OPD's 2019 report show that there were 20,027 crimes in the city. The number of larceny-theft cases was 12,307, the most common crime committed. With 23 cases, criminal homicide was the least common crime. Although not the most common crime, there were 3,537 arrests for misdemeanor assault, more than the 3,064 recorded arrests for larceny-theft.

70% of all criminal homicide cases were cleared, the highest rate of cleared offenses per crime. The OPD also cleared 13% of all burglary cases, the lowest rate of cleared cases in 2019.

Are Omaha Criminal Records Public?

Omaha criminal records are public records available to all interested persons from the Omaha Police Department. However, Nebraska law requires that the OPD redacts certain information from a public record, including:

  • A record without charges filed by a prosecuting attorney after one year from the date of arrest
  • A record without charges due to a completed diversion after two years from the date of arrest
  • A record where the filed charges were eventually dismissed after acquittal, deferred judgment, completion of a program by a problem-solving court, or a motion presented by the prosecuting attorney
