FOP Wants Stimulus Funds for Police Department
By John Durkee
Tulsa, OK – The Tulsa City Council, today, is expected to take-up the issue of using federal stimulus money to hire 18 additional police officers. Some council members are worried what will happen when the federal funds run-out.
Fraternal Order of Police President Phil Evans say attrition will take care of it.The FOP is urging the Council to accept the funds.
A study last summer shows the police department lacking in staff. The report recommended nearly 100 new employees to the force.
