The first Tulsa County Sheriff’s reserve deputy under a revamped program has entered the final stage of training. The program has been reworked by new Sheriff Vic Regalado after problems came to light following the shooting of an unarmed suspect by former reserve Robert Bates. Reserve Mike Leitch has now become the first to finish required field training under the new standards. Sheriff Regalado has increased training hours for all reserves, and made several other changes.

Four other reserves could potentially finish training and return to active duty over the next six weeks.
