The Tulsa Sheriff’s Office seeks bids for an architect to expand the jail. Sheriff Stanley Glanz says bonds to pay for the work have already been approved and are on the market. He says things are moving along quickly. Advertising for architectural bids was approved today, and are due by the end of the month. Glanz expects the project to begin by August or September, and it should be finished in about 18 months.

Four new jail pods will be constructed, adding some 300 beds to the Moss Center’s inmate capacity.
