After providing all the security right after the Sunday tornado, Tulsa police are backing off some now that cleanup is well underway. Spokesman Sargent Shane Tuell says the responsibility for security is falling to business and property owners. Many have hired private firms to provide 24-hour security on their damaged property.
Sargent Tuell says it doesn’t mean there isn’t a high profile police presence in the storm ravaged area. They will remain extra vigilant in the shopping and industrial business damage corridor as long as necessary.
