A proposal to add a second Omaha Police Department recruit class next year is competing with Mayor Jean Stothert's plan for the state's largest law enforcement agency.
City Council President Pete Festersen offered a plan Wednesday to create the extra recruit class next year, in addition to a class proposed by the mayor. Festersen wants to expand the force to 820 officers by 2015.
