Kerrie Orozco

Kerrie Sue Orozco was a native of Southwest Iowa. Born in 1985, Kerrie graduated from Walnut Community School in Walnut, IA. She was very active in high school sports, clubs and community events, her favorites being basketball, volleyball, jazz band and 4H.

After high school, Kerrie attended Creighton University, with the idea of becoming an anesthesiologist. Kerrie eventually caught the public service bug, and transferred and earned a criminal justice degree from Bellevue University.

Kerrie graduated from the Omaha Police Academy on May 15, 2008. After performing various duties with OPD, Kerrie accepted the opportunity to become a Gang Unit Officer. She assisted the US Marshals with their important public safety work.

Kerrie developed her work ethic while growing up on a farm, so it was no surprise Kerrie took it upon herself to learn Spanish. She felt it would help her better interact with Spanish-speaking citizens. In a short time, Kerrie was speaking Spanish as well as English.

Kerrie was passionate about helping area youth. She coached a baseball team at the Boys and Girls Club of North Omaha. It was her habit while patrolling the streets to get out of her cruiser to challenge kids in a game of basketball or recruit them to her baseball team. Of course, Kerrie was not after filling roster spots with blue-chip athletes. She was more interested in finding ways to better their lives, letting kids know the community cared for them, and giving them hope when all else seemed hopeless to them.

Kerrie was proud of her work with the Shop With a Cop program and also facilitated the annual Easter Egg hunt for the Black Police Officers' Association (BPOA) and Latino Police Officers' Association (LPOA) as well as volunteering for Cops and Bobbers.

It was Kerrie's idea to establish the annual Police Officers Ball, a fundraiser for the Nebraska Special Olympics. Animals were also the object of her affection, She fostered Great Danes with the Big Dogs Huge Paws Organization, volunteered with the Girl Scouts, and still had time for her family and extensive group of friends. Kerrie had a loving, expansive heart. Her life was about giving hope to everyone she encountered.

Detective Kerrie Orozco proudly served the City of Omaha for 6 years before she was shot and killed in the line of duty. Kerrie was hours away from taking maternity leave to be home with her baby Olivia, who was born prematurely a few months before her death. Olivia was to be released from the hospital the day Kerrie was killed.
