TULSA, OK – Dan Miller, who is currently in Edmond, OK assisting with communication exercises hosted by the Oklahoma Homeland Security has this to say about the Grand Jury verdict, “Having served almost 20 years in law enforcement, I am extremely disappointed in the reports coming back from the Grand Jury on the Tulsa County Sheriff’s Office. We as law enforcement office take this job to protect and serve the citizens of this county and provide honest & transparent service, and unfortunately, that was found out to not be the case,” says Dan Miller, Tulsa Police Department Corporal running for Tulsa County Sheriff.
“While there are recommendations that can be rectified immediately, restoring trust will take time and a full commitment from the next sheriff to actively seek out the Tulsa County community’s trust and faith.” Miller went on to say, “when a community trust and has faith in its law enforcement officers, it provides a safe community ensuring that LEOs are making it home safely after their shift. While this investigation only looked at the things that were done wrong, we must also take the time to acknowledge the things that were done right and the great people have been overlooked in the office who work hard to make sure those right things were happening.”
“The only way to restore trust in this office is to provide leadership that has integrity, accountability and transparency when it comes to the business and fiscal management of the office, and on the street customer service,” Miller ended.
