School Resource Officers are on the front lines of school safety. Their purpose is to protect the lives of the students and staff at the campuses where they serve.
On Wednesday, July 27th, a hundred school resource officers (SRO’s) from across Oklahoma are scheduled to attend training hosted by the Tulsa County Sheriff’s Office. This training will take place during the Oklahoma Association of School Resource Officers’ 2022 Conference in Tulsa.
This conference is open to SRO’s as well as School Administrators. The goal is for attendees to learn how to make their schools safer by learning how to recognize potential threats, such as those made on social media, and respond to them before a tragedy occurs.
Sheriff Regalado will give the opening remarks for this year’s conference. He will speak at 8:00 am and will be available for interviews after his speech. Trainers and conference attendees will also be available interviews.
It is with deep sadness that we announce the death of Tulsa County Deputy Santiago Rodriguez, who passed away unexpectedly this morning following a medical emergency that occurred while he was off duty.
Deputy Rodriguez was 40 years old. He had been a Deputy at the Tulsa County Sheriff’s Office for 14 years. Over the court of his career, Rodriguez received letters of accommodation for his work as a Deputy at the Tulsa County Courthouse. He lived a career of service, not only to the citizens of Tulsa County, but also to his country, through his time as a member of the Navy Reserve.
Dep. Rodriguez was a loving father to his four children. He will be greatly missed by all of his coworkers and friends here at the Sheriff’s Office.
