Swearing in Ceremony for Tulsa Tech Students

On May 24th, TCSO will swear in 15 Tulsa Tech Criminal Justice students as Detention Officers. Those graduates who have already reached the age of 18 will immediately begin working in the jail.

The partnership between TCSO and Tulsa Tech’s Criminal Justice Program creates immediate job opportunities for students, while helping the Tulsa County Sheriff’s Office to ease the manpower crisis at the jail.

Every month TCSO holds Detention Academies at the jail, but this does not provide enough employees to meet the manpower numbers needed.  Currently, the Tulsa County Jail needs to hire an additional 75 Detention Officers.

Working in the jail gives graduates valuable experience and training they will be able use throughout their law enforcement careers.

This is the third year for the partnership between TCSO and Tulsa Tech. Over the previous two years, 28 Tulsa Tech students have been sworn-in as TCSO Detention Officers.
