Tulsa Police To Use $400K Grant To Combat Violent Crime

Posted: Updated:
TULSA, Oklahoma -

The Tulsa Police Department has been awarded a $400,000 state grant from the Oklahoma Attorney General's office to fight violent crime.

According to Chief Chuck Jordan, the money will allow the department to continue to address emerging criminal trends in four areas for the next 12 months:

  • Organized Gang Unit to apply intelligence-based policing methodology targeting violent certified gang members and their criminal operations 
  • Fugitive Warrants Unit to conduct surveillance, pursuit, and apprehension of warranted-for- violent-crimes within our community
  • Detectives and uniformed officers to conduct compliance checks for sexual and violent offenders’ registrants residing in our community to assure their compliance. Officers will arrest and seek prosecution of those violating the conditions of their sentencing/parole
  • Vice Unit to continue the expanded operations for investigations of human trafficking, prostitution, and businesses that facilitate these criminal enterprises

“Their help has played a major role in some of the most significant operations to reduce criminal activities in these areas over the last few years. The Tulsa Police Department is honored to have been chosen to receive this award and looks forward to continuing its efforts in these areas with assistance from Attorney General Pruitt’s office,” Chief Chuck Jordan said.
