Omaha mayor Jean Stothert announced a tentative agreement with the Omaha Police Officers Association on a new contract on Monday afternoon.

During a news conference Monday afternoon, the mayor laid out the labor agreement.

It was announced that officers would receive a 14 and a half percent raise between the years 2016 and 2020.

OPD officers would also move to a high-deductible health insurance plan.

This comes after the union for Omaha police officers says it was dealing with a hiring crisis.
