TULSA, Oklahoma -- Tulsa is taking a big step in the fight against child predators. City leaders announced a new partnership Wednesday with the organization "Stop Child Trafficking Now."

The group will work out of the police department but, Chief Chuck Jordan says the workers will not take any police action, just do what they do best, intelligence gathering.

Mayor Bartlett says it's a way to stop child sex trafficking.

"We all know that it is there and we want to do whatever we can to help stop it," he said.

The Mayor said this partnership isn't costing taxpayers a dime. He said Tulsa is gaining access to a national database of traffickers and predators.
