Take-Home Cuts May Spare Tulsa Police Jobs

October 29, 2009

TULSA, OK - The Tulsa Police Union was recently requested by Councilor Rick Westcott to give up officer take-home vehicles going outside the city limits in order to save jobs and the helicopter and mounted patrol units, according to Tulsa World.

Westcott said if the union agreed to take the $1.1 million perk out of its contract, it would prevent the deep cuts from the Tulsa Police Department.

Mayor Kathy Taylor's proposed reductions in the police budget include saving $761,000 by eliminating 21 officers, $195,000 by grounding the helicopters, and $51,000 by completely eliminating the mounted patrol. The savings associated with those three line items totals $1,007,000, reported Tulsa World.
