On this edition of ST on Health, guest host John Henning Schumann conducts an interesting conversation with Brent Wolfe, director of the Tulsa County Juvenile Bureau. Most of us probably already know that Oklahoma's incarceration rate is alarmingly high --- our state ranks a shameful third in the nation in this regard --- but what might not be as commonly known is that many of these incarcerated adults began to run afoul of the law as juvenile offenders.
Tulsa County leaders will wait until September 10th to designate projects they’d like to see on the Vision 2 ballot in November. Commission Chairman John Smaligo says the needs are no secret….juvenile justice, expo square, and roads and bridges.
Commissioners will hold a public hearing before taking action on the project list. The issue goes to the voters on November 6th.
