COMMUNITY ADVISORY BOARDS
First developed in 2017, the Community Advisory Board program aims to further the Tulsa Police Department’s mission of working in partnership with our community to provide quality service, protect life and property, prevent crime and resolve problems so people can live without fear in a safe environment.
The Community Advisory Board is a volunteer group of citizens, led by patrol division commanders and representing diverse interests, who live or conduct business within that patrol division and meet to provide mutual insight and knowledge to help guide effective collaborative policing. Each patrol division, including Gilcrease, Mingo Valley, and Riverside, hosts a board. Each board consists of five to ten citizens who are selected in coordination with the Crime Prevention Network and approved by the Chief of Police.

I am so proud to be a 4th generation Tulsan that was taught our family value….helping people, especially those that are less fortunate than you and make the world a better place. Attended Tulsa Public Schools and had such great leadership training when my classmates and I opened Nimitz Jr. High and Memorial High School and we named the teams, chose our colors/songs, started the school clubs and generally were a big part of the school. I graduated from Colorado Womans College, Denver and returned to Tulsa. I was blessed to be married to Coleman Davis for 38 years years before his death and we raised 3 beautiful daughters and 2 “perfect” grandbabes. It has been an Honor to Chair and lead the efforts for Tulsa’s year long Centennial Celebration plus be asked by the Governor to Chair Oklahoma’s Kickoff CENTENNIAL Celebration here in Tulsa, during which I led the efforts for the unearthing of the 1957 Time Capsule containing “Ms Belvedere”, the Plymouth Belvedere. I have loved serving on numerous Tulsa non-profit Boards, as well as City and State Boards, Authorities and Commissions over the past 40 yrs. One of my favorites, is The Little Lighthouse. At LLH miracles happen daily with special needs children and the facility is completely tuition free! Currently serving TCC Foundation Board, Arts Alliance Tulsa Board, The Tulsa Historical Society Board, City of Tulsa Election Commission and the River Parks Authority. It has been my civic honor to serve the City of Tulsa by leading 3 voter initiatives that were successful. My greatest joy was teaching my preschool Sunday School class for 38 years before retiring. . I am blessed daily by 3 smart and savvy women in our family Commercial Real Estate Business Kelley, Kalen and Kasey who just happen to be my daughters! As a developer, I have built 3 shopping centers with other holdings. We are raising the grandbabes, to be the 6thgeneration Tulsans with the same family philosophy to make Tulsa a better place for all!
