The Tulsa County Sheriff's Office started its very first 55+ Senior Academy on February
29, 2000. The academy gives the Sheriff's Office a chance to get to know the needs
of older adults and gives seniors a chance to familiarize themselves with the duties
of law enforcement officers. Some of the topics discussed include criminal and civil
law, patrol and traffic procedures, gangs, search warrants, communications, senior
domestic abuse, fraud/scams, Alzheimer's, TRIAD and S.A.L.T.
programs. This is an eight week program with 24 hours of training. Sheriff Stanley
Glanz said, "The goal of the Sheriff's Office is to host two senior academies per
year, to maintain an open line of communication with the seniors of Tulsa County."
