Hey guys, so I’m about to relocate to OMAHA Nebraska in January. Any feedback on safe zip codes near the Nebraska field office is appreciated

You don't say what agency's field office you are talking about so we can't possibly know what area would be close to it. Generally the worst part of Omaha has historically been the area north of downtown, called the near north side. Omaha's expansion over the years has been mostly westward, so the areas with the newest housing are on the west side of town. You might also check out Sarpy county and the towns of Bellevue, Papillion, and LaVista. And as GWPDA suggested, go to http://www.city-data.com/forum/omaha/ for additional information.

Sorry, it’s the USCIS Field Office. Your information is helpful, will check the city data info

OK, so that's near Omaha's airport, Eppley Field, and almost in Iowa (the office is actually east of the only part of Iowa that is west of the Missouri River), so the western part of the metro might not be the most convenient location for commuting purposes. I don't know much about the housing situation in the area immediately around the office. The city of Carter Lake, Iowa is close by and has some newer townhouses for sale at a reasonable price (https://www.trulia.com/property/3270135836-3008-Nakoma-Ln-Carter-Lake-IA-51510) but I don't know how safe the area would be considered or whether that area would have the amenities you'd want. Generally, extreme southeast Omaha and Bellevue are considered pretty safe, and it would be an easy commute up 13th Street. Of course this assumes you will have a car, and it looks like you'll need one since there doesn't appear to be any public transportation going anywhere near the office.
