Training
New Patroller and Renewal Training for Existing Patrollers
Thursday, August 15, 2019
Historically, the Omaha Police Department held several training sessions to teach patrollers the art of observing and reporting. Currently, OCCP conducts the training in cooperation with the Police Department. This is a more effective utilization of police Department assets and provides OCCP more control over the timing and availability of the training. Regularly scheduled training dates, times and locations are announced at the monthly OCCP meetings. Additional training sessions can be arranged if there is a demand for them. OCCP has developed a training procedure that includes a combination of Police and OCCP instruction. The police will concentrate on observation and reporting, being a good witness, street safety and interaction with Law Enforcement Personal. The police will also explain their rules and procedures for participation in their Sign Removal from Public Property program. OCCP trainers will concentrate on the policies and procedures of an effective and safe citizen patrol group. In other words, OCCP will provide a “Nuts & Bolts approach to Citizen Patrolling, from organizing a new patrol to going out on patrol. In lieu of formal training, some patrols provide several methods of “Cross Training”, where trained patrollers will train new members during normal patrols. It is OCCP’s policy, however, that all patrollers attend formal training before they will receive an ID card and/or the privilege to work directly with the Omaha Police Department during joint efforts. OCCP acknowledges the cooperation and support of the Omaha Police Department. Omaha Police personnel offer encouragement and guidance and allow OCCP to meet our ultimate goal of making our neighborhoods and city a safer and better place to live.
Registration begins at 6:00 PM, and training starts at 6:30 PM.
