Betsworth


Name: Jacob Betsworth

Rank: Sergeant

Experience: 10-plus years with Sarpy County and four years prior law enforcement in Iowa.

Hobbies: Competing in national shooting competitions and chasing the kiddos around!

Any nicknames? Betsy

Favorite local restaurant: Malara’s...best South Omaha Italian food around.

Best part of your job: I love the spontaneity of police work. Solving problems on the fly only to move onto the next one and do it again. Never knowing what’s next keeps it fresh and exciting.

If I wasn’t a police officer, I’d be ... a writer for a magazine.
