Police Staffing Dashboard

In September 2015, the University of Cincinnati Institute for Crime Science analyzed Tulsa’s Police staffing levels and crime trends. The study concluded that the police department was “operating at a serious staffing deficiency.” In response to this study, city leaders asked the voters to approve the Vision Tulsa program which expands the number of police officers available to respond to and prevent crime in the city. The dashboard summarizes the University of Cincinnati recommendations for both patrol and non-patrol police officers.
