Tulsa County Sheriff http://kwgs.org en A Conversation with Tulsa County Sheriff Stanley Glanz http://kwgs.org/post/conversation-tulsa-county-sheriff-stanley-glanz <p>There's been a lot of talk lately about Tulsa County's seriously over-crowded jail and its woefully under-funded juvenile justice system. Thus certain Tulsa County officials are currently holding --- that is, this week and next --- a series of public meetings all over the county in order to a.) explain these separate yet related problems, and b.) make the case for a .067-cent tax, which the officials say will fix these issues. Our guest on ST is Stanley Glanz, who's served as the Sheriff of Tulsa County since 1989.
