How about hiring some firefighters while you're at it COT?

We thought that there was supposed to be numerous retirements in the Fire Department this year? What happened to those? The City is restoring lost positions, it seems like. The Fire Department did not lose any positions. Is this a "me-too" mentality?? The Fire Department gets exactly what the Police Department?

Good, the more Officers, the better since I woke to someone breaking into my property this morning and only had to wait a lil bit for an Officer to arrive @ the scene instead of like 45 minutes + like it used to, I say "saturate" this City and get this nasty crime under control once and for all!

The response times for "priority" calls didn't go down during the last round of layoffs..

The police are part of the problem in that we make the broken wheel work, and go to calls by ourselves in which we should always have a backing officer. I would like to see a report with priority response times and report response times. It seems that report response times went up.

Qualified applicants must enjoy loitering at Quicktrip and never enforce laws on a minority of any kind. Shaved heads get extra notice but are not required. Great pay, and you can get officer of the year if your numbers look good, no matter how they are obtained.

Safe work environment. No thug intervention required. Bring your own pen to write crime scene reports.

Applicants considering relocating to apply should strongly consider housing their families well outside of the city limits of Tulsa for safety.

I have to say that I was a little concerned when I called @ 4 a.m. that there was only one Officer, I don;t know what was going on, I just know I heard alot of noise looked @ my Cameras and saw a person breaking into my storage units and the officer walked with me thru the property and had me stay inside, I was very impressed since the last time I called for much the same reason a few years back I waited 45 or more minutes!, I so commend you Officers for your bravery!=) "and professionalizm"!

City of Tulsa is a 3 ring circus! This is unbelievable. Forced layoffs, accepting funds from the Fed Gov't either borrowed from China or putting our children in debt, followed by costly recruiting and training?

This city lost its mind!

sounds like the city again is getting the cart before the horse. Getting up everyone ones hope and the city does not even know what it is doing now or in the future. I hope that they get some GOOD officers that really care,

That's because that makes you over qualified.

I think with the retirees and the ones that have been involved in this investigation and some arrested that we should be looking outside the city of Tulsa for recruits... or am I wrong...??? you see I don't think that maybe the corruption is all taken care of yet...

The Tulsa, cronie crime wave, started with lying about federal funds, officers were dismissed, a RIGHT WING JUDGE investigates the department. The department was trashed, drug heads were set free. Cases are being reviewed, drug heads with prior convictions, are back on the streets selling drugs. Posts are now saying they want a good police department, what about the CRONIES. What ever happened to a reduction of sentences, or do RIGHT WINGERS exempt them selves from this.

I took my lunch break at a Mexican restaraunt on north sheridan . When I got there a cop had just pulled over a hispanic for running a red light and they where sitting in front of the drive through. I think the customers took off out the back door and the people working there looked really nervous. I got my burito and waved to the cop and he waved back. He didn't have any back up. They make darned good Buritos.

I dont think the right wing or the left wing or the middle like crime and drug dealers or corruption in the TPD. It's not about politics but about right and wrong.

TPD already looks outside the city for recruits, and regularly hires from other states. One problem with hiring from other states is that many don't require bachelor degrees. Therefore, some prospective recruits can't apply here even if they are already in law enforcement.

I heard that about 400,000 illegals are leaving Arizona. I wonder what effect if any this will have on Tulsa and the rest of America?
