Back to School

ARCHIVED PRESS RELEASE: Published 8-16-2012

The Tulsa Police Department, in cooperation with the Tulsa Public Schools Police Department, will focus on the opening of the Tulsa Public Schools on Monday August 20th.  TPD officers will also be monitoring the Jenks Public Schools opening on Thursday August 16th.   Motorcycle officers and Traffic Enforcement Units will give special attention to all moving violations near schools and around school buses that will be picking up and dropping off students.  A citation issued in a school zone or for passing a school bus that has activated its flashing loading lights will be a book to court with NO WARNINGS.

Starting this week, all drivers are encouraged to actively look out for children walking or riding bicycles to and from school, and to be extra cautious around all school buses.  Parents are also advised to be very careful when dropping off and picking up their children near a school.  Remind your child to look both ways when crossing the street and to use a crosswalk and / or school crossing guard.
