Police said Thursday a sexual relationship between a security officer at the Omaha Public Schools and a student is not a criminal matter.
Both parties were of legal age, and the relationship was consensual, police said.
The security officer had worked at Burke High School and was dismissed by OPS for violating policy, according to news reports Thursday.
The security officer was not a member of the Omaha Police Department, Lt. Darci Tierney, a police spokesman, told The World-Herald.
Because the relationship was not a criminal matter, police said, OPS was not required to report it to authorities.
Todd Andrews, an OPS spokesman, described the security officer as a contracted employee. He declined to comment further on the employee, saying it was a personnel matter.
Andrews said background checks are performed on all people who work for the school district, including private securrity officers and volunteers.
