Personnel

The Aurora Police Department has a current authorized sworn force of eight officers, including the Chief of Police. All police Officers of the Aurora Police Department are certified by the State of Nebraska.  The department also employs one Administrative Assistant and one Animal Control Officer.  Both the Administrative Assistant and Animal Control Officer are not sworn officers or certified by the State of Nebraska.

The Aurora Police Department provides 24 hour police protection with its patrol division consisting of six officers and three police units, two black Dodge Chargers and one white Crown Victoria.  The Aurora Police Department also has one unmarked Ford Explorer. 

In 2007, the Aurora Police Department implemented a Bicycle Patrol program certifying two officers as Bicycle Patrol Officers.  The Bicycle Patrol was designed to increase police and community relations by allowing our officers to be more active and visible at local events held in the park and the downtown area.  The Bicycle Patrol program allows officers an alternative tool for crime prevention during the spring, summer, and fall months.


The Aurora Police Departments Administration, this includes the Chief of Police, Lieutenant/Assistant Chief, and Administrative Assistant, work Monday through Friday with select Holidays off.  The Chief of Police and the Lieutenant/Assistant Chief are available during the hours of 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.  The Administrative Assistant is available from 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

An Aurora Police Officer works a 12 hours shift.  There are three shifts available each day.  The Day Shift works from 6:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.  The Swing Shift works from 3:00 p.m. until 3:00 a.m.  The Night Shift works the hours of 6:00 p.m. to 6:00 a.m.  The Police Officer’s schedule rotates every other week:  week one working Monday, Tuesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday and week two working Wednesday and Thursday (including Holidays).  T
his rotation allows for our officers to have every other weekend off allowing them time to spend with their family. 

The Animal Control Officer works part time and is called out as needed during the week and weekends.
