Tulsa Jail Again Accepting Municipal Inmates


The Tulsa jail is back to normal operations, once again taking inmates arrested on just municipal charges. The switch was made last night after the prisoner population was reduced to 1725. The Sheriff's Office had stopped accepting those on municipal charges only after the numbers topped 1900. Since then, various methods have been used to reduce the population in the Moss Center, but officials say they're searching for a more permanent solution, which may include renegotiating the contract with the city of Tulsa.
