The Tulsa County Sheriff's Office, in conjunction with Tulsa Public Schools,
has adopted two elementary schools in Tulsa County.
In 1999, the Sheriff's Office adopted Jane Addams Elementary School, located in
West Tulsa. The Sheriff's Office has implemented a mentoring
program at the school
which allows employees to be teamed with a student and meet with that student at
least once per week.
In 2000, the Sheriff's Office adopted Cherokee Elementary School, located in North
Tulsa. "It is important that our children feel safe, and also feel that they can
come to law enforcement officers for help and support," Sheriff Glanz said. "Our
deputies want to continue to be role models for the future leaders of our county."
