Our Public Safety

class="headline">We will listen to experts and address crime in a comprehensive way.

gt-public-safety.jpgPublic Safety is the most vital role of any municipal government.  I have always worked to improve the safety of Tulsa’s citizens and will continue to do so.  Our police officers and firefighters must know we support them and that they will have the resources they need to do their jobs.  That’s why I fought to restore funding for Tulsa Police academies to keep well-trained officers protecting our streets.  It’s why I wrote a budget amendment to put our Tulsa Police helicopters back in service, and it’s why I support the current plan to add 160 police officers and 65 firefighters to our forces. 

As Mayor, I will work to make Tulsa the employer of choice for police officers and firefighters in Oklahoma.  I will seek and facilitate partnerships with our vibrant not-for-profit community to address crime in a comprehensive way.  And, just like I did when I worked to establish the nation’s first Municipal Veterans Treatment Court, I will listen to experts and pursue proven, innovative approaches that make our community safer.
