Sarpy County names new head of emergency communications
A longtime member of the Omaha law enforcement community returns to the metro as Bill Muldoon is set to take the reins of the Sarpy County Emergency Communications Department.
Muldoon will oversee the Emergency Communications Center, which handles all 911 and public safety calls in the county. One of his primary tasks will be to continue efforts to improve communication among public safety agencies across the region.
“We are excited to welcome Bill to our management team,” said Director of Administrative Services Stu DeLaCastro, whose duties include oversight of the emergency services departments.
“Throughout the selection process, it was clear that he not only brings the professionalism, energy and expertise necessary to effectively lead the Emergency Communications/911 staff, but also the collaborative spirit needed to provide exemplary service to our public safety partners.”
Muldoon arrives on the job with 40 years experience in public safety, most recently as the Director of the Nebraska Law Enforcement Training Center for the past 12 years. He was Chief of Police in Nebraska City for three years and served for 25 years in the Omaha Police Department.
Muldoon, who received a bachelor’s degree in Criminal Justice Administration from Bellevue University, has held leadership roles in the Metropolitan Police Chief’s Association, the Police Chief’s Association of Nebraska, and the International Association of Directors of Law Enforcement Standards and Training (IADLEST). He received the Distinguished Service Award from the University of Nebraska Omaha in 2015 and the Leadership Award for Strategic Planning from IADLEST in 2011.
“This is a great opportunity to join a rapidly growing county,” Muldoon said. “With all of the changes in technology and NextGen 911, there are a lot of exciting challenges ahead.”
