History

The Tulsa Board of Education voted on June 21, 2007, to approve creation of Tulsa Public Schools’ first-ever district police department. In December of 2007, Senator James Inhofe and Congressman John Sullivan were instrumental in securing a half-million dollars in federal money to assist TPS in its effort to keep its 42,000 students safe and secure at school. On May 5, 2008, veteran Oklahoma police officer and administrator Gary Rudick became the district’s first Chief of Police.
