Abandoned Vehicle

How do I report an abandoned vehicle?

In most cases, a vehicle is considered “abandoned” after 48 hours of being legally parked on a public roadway, in the same location.

Though you may not consider it an emergency, abandoned vehicles are reported like any other call for service, by dialing 911.

Callers should be prepared to give
a full description of the vehicle, including:

  • color
  • make
  • model
  • license plate number
  • the exact physical location.

Deputies will “red tag” the vehicle to document its location and will then wait at least 48 hours prior to conducting their follow up investigation.

Difference Between Sheriff and Police

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
