It's a mark of professionalism in the law enforcement community- Omaha police are up for re-accreditation.
The Commission of Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies is the organization making the decision on the re-accreditation.
Tuesday, August 13th, the public got the opportunity to address two members of the CALEA about their thoughts on Omaha Police.
"There had been a break down in training and supervision and you have officers that don't know the departments own policies. They also don't know things about the first amendment and the fourth amendment they should know," said Sam Walker, citizen.
But many others disagreed by commending the police department. "I really see the professionalism of this police department comes full board at our meetings, and I thank you for the opportunity to speak," said Dr. Jack Lewis.
The Omaha police department was last accredited in 2010.
