What is the difference between the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office and the Omaha Police Department?

One of the primary differences is patrol responsibilities.

Though deputies have jurisdiction throughout Douglas County, including within the City limits, they primarily patrol and respond to calls for service outside the boundaries of the City of Omaha.

In addition, the Sheriff’s Office also handles other duties both inside and outside the City limits, including:

  • prisoner transportation to court
  • processing permits to purchase handguns
  • out of State vehicle title inspections
  • serving:
    • civil court papers
    • board of mental health orders
    • protection orders
    • arrest warrants
