TULSA, Oklahoma -

A history of violent crime at 61st Street and Peoria Avenue, including the shocking murders of four women in an apartment in that area, has spurred some citizens to try to create change in Tulsa.

The city council held its first "Quality of Life" task force meeting Tuesday evening.

Tulsans who wanted to volunteer their time met with councilors to get started on forming several crime-fighting committees.

They intend to fight, not by wielding weapons, but by addressing problems like health, housing, and education.

"Crime and poverty are not neighborhood issues, they're city issues. And things that happen in one neighborhood impact people that live in other areas," said District 9 City Councilor G.T. Bynum.

Bynum says it's not too late to join the task force. You can sign up by calling the City Council at 918-596-1990.
