Tulsa Domestic Strangulation Initiative



The Tulsa Police Department is implementing the Domestic Strangulation Initiative to better serve our community in an attempt to reduce violence and possibly reduce domestic homicides.

The Tulsa Police Department recognizes the seriousness of domestic strangulation for the following reasons:

  • Non-Fatal Strangulation can lead to strokes, brain injury, and possible death.    
  • Strangulation in domestic violence is usually an indication of an escalation of violence between domestic partners.

Domestic Strangulation Background

Non-fatal strangulation is known to be a significant risk factor for intimate partner homicide (IPH) and attempted homicide of women.
