Independent Monitor on Tonight's Council Agenda

Tulsa City Council/KWGS News

Near the bottom of tonight’s Tulsa City Council agenda is item “7-G”.

It is the ordinance that would create an Office of Independent Monitor. The monitor would review Tulsa Police use of force case. Mayor Bynum says he was caught off guard by all the controversy. He says the office would just review internal affairs reports or point ip any problems.

The Fraternal Order Of Police says the creation of such an office should be a union-negotiated item.
