Downtown Omaha thrives when our residents, employees, and visitors feel comfortable and confident.
There are several safety resources available to foster a vibrant Downtown community. ODID partners with the Omaha Police Department and our private contract security firm to best educate the public on trends and prevention. Have some ideas or thoughts, you can email Security@omahadowntown.org.
Since 2010, the ODID has contracted for professional, unarmed security services to patrol Downtown and observe/report any security related issues. Lion’s Gate Security Solutions is our current provider. They also secure the Holland Center, Orpheum Theater, and the Paxton building an interweaving system throughout Downtown.
