A Conversation with Tulsa County Sheriff Stanley Glanz

File photo
Aired on Wednesday, January 15th.

There's been a lot of talk lately about Tulsa County's seriously over-crowded jail and its woefully under-funded juvenile justice system. Thus certain Tulsa County officials are currently holding --- that is, this week and next --- a series of public meetings all over the county in order to a.) explain these separate yet related problems, and b.) make the case for a .067-cent tax, which the officials say will fix these issues. Our guest on ST is Stanley Glanz, who's served as the Sheriff of Tulsa County since 1989. Glanz makes that case for us today, and in doing so elucidates the over-crowded situation at the David L. Moss Criminal Justice Center --- how over-booked it is, how it got that way, and so on --- while also telling us why there's an "immediate need" for a new Tulsa County Juvenile Court and Detention Facility. To learn more about the remaining Public Safety Town Hall Meetings in this regard, please go to this page at the Tulsa County website. Or you can call 918-630-5952 --- or simply consult the schedule offered below. Please note that all meetings run from 6pm till 8pm, and that all are of course open to the public.
