TULSA, Oklahoma -- The Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs presented the Tulsa County Sheriff's Office Wednesday morning with 15 surplus handheld radios.
The OBNDD recently purchased new handheld radios and officials said that freed up 15 radios they could donate to the sheriff's office.
Tulsa County Sheriff Stanley Glanz said this is good news for his office.
"It comes at a good time when training and equipment budgets are challenged," said Sheriff Glanz.
He said the radios will be utilized by the TCSO Reserve Program during training operations, the Tulsa State Fair, the Sheriff's Boy Scout Camp and numerous other public events.
The OBNDD says the radios are still in good working order and if Tulsa County had had to purchase the radios new, it could have cost $36,000.
