I saw that last night and all I have to say.... ITS ABOUT TIME!

It took 25 Years and the best show on TV is FINALLY coming to Omaha!

I think I have seen every episode over the past 25 years too!

I sincerely hope that when they said "Omaha", they meant the metro. I also hope that they spend the majority of their time in Council Bluffs. This is really embarassing.

I'm a big fan of the show and honestly I don't know why any department would want to have their officers babysit film crews for several weeks, but it will be interesting to see what they do around here. Maybe they'll get one of these calls, lol:

They'll probably camp out in Northeast Omaha and have enough material for a week-long special.

I listen to the police scanner every day. The good material seems to be spread out all over town.

That said... I can not believe how many people call 911 for barking dogs!

I try to avoid anything that has "streets" and "omaha" in it to be honest.

Although some of those are pretty interesting.

I've seen some clips from a DSM visit years ago and they didnt come off too bad at all. Guess it all depends on what happens.

My biggest shock was seeing a guy I played rec basketball against was a cop, and apparently a pretty good one.

My favorite from DSM was when the officer thought they could cross a railroad track, NOT at a crossing, in a cruiser. Needless to say the cruiser was stuck between the rails when they heard a Train Horn off in the distance!

Lucky for them, the train was on a different track!

Shooting at the Wendy's on 43rd and Dodge. Multiple patients. Twitter is suggesting that this was an officer involved shooting and a COPS photographer was shot, but the news sources are vague at this point.

Like two blocks from my house. I went out to the park on 42nd street over looking Dodge to see what was up and I finally realized that might not be smart when the police copter flew by really low.

I can't imagine any scenario where the suspect gets out of the building if she is firing out like that.
