Remembered as “a fantastic husband and father, an honorable and honest lawman,” Officer Greg Hamill served 12-years with the Omaha Police Department. He died of complications from the H1N1 flu virus on February 18, 2014.
Officer Hamill’s career included service with the Department’s elite Narcotics Unit, where he worked on special operations with agencies such as the Drug Enforcement Agency and the U.S. Marshal.
A hero in life and in death, Officer Hamill donated his organs for the benefit of others. Fellow officers say the husband and father of two was someone they could always count on.
