About Omaha

Omaha is the seat of Douglas County and the largest city in Nebraska. It has a land area of 127 square miles. The city’s name comes from the Omaha Indian word for “upstream people”. The city was founded in 1854 and incorporated in 1857.

An estimated 447,000 people live in Omaha. Around 25,700 or residents are military veterans. Omaha is also home to about 9,000 Native Americans, representing more than 150 tribes. 1,000 of Native Americans in the city are from the Omaha Tribe specifically.

Roughly 85% of Omaha residents over the age of 25 have graduated from high school. Thirty-five percent of residents in this age group have earned a bachelor’s degree. People in Omaha earn an average annual salary of $28,500. The median household income is $50,800. More than 16% of residents live below the poverty line. 

Mental Health in Omaha

All police officers in Omaha will receive mental health and Native American cultural training in June 2018. This initiative comes after a Native American man with mental health concerns died while in police custody in 2017. Reports say Zachary Bearheels was punched in the head, shocked several times with a taser, and dragged by his ponytail by Omaha police officers. Bearheels' family revealed he had schizophrenia and bipolar diagnoses.

The proposed training program will have one training section for cultural sensitivity and one for mental health. Each section will last roughly 90 minutes. Mayor Strothert is also creating a Native American advisory board to improve community relations.
