With nearly 18,000 residents, Papillion ranks as the 11th largest city in Nebraska and has experienced an incredible 57.7% growth in population over the last 10 years. Our city's fabric is woven from two distinctly different threads. We strive to maintain the small town flavor that makes Papillion attractive, despite the fact that we are located in the middle of the Omaha metro area, which has more than 800,000 inhabitants. Papillion's unique situation requires our department to employ 21st century policing technology and tactics without shedding our "neighborhood cop" identity. To do this, we strive to hire and retain the highest quality police officers and non-sworn staff.
