Months-long Tulsa violent crimes initiative results in 110 arrests since April; drugs, guns seized

TULSA - Nearly a dozen law enforcement agencies are applauding their efforts to reduce crime in the Tulsa metro area.

The U.S. Attorney joined local law enforcement Thursday to announce the results of a months-long violent crimes initiative.

Dozens of arrests have been made in the 61st and Peoria area since April and now more than 100 people are off the streets.

The cleanup is a result of federal, state and local law enforcement cracking down on violent crimes in the area -- an initiative prompted by the Fairmont Terrace quadruple homicide in January.


I had a friend who used to live in the neighborhood just north of Fairmont Terrace, and he loved living there, but regularly heard shots and was reluctant to go outside in his front yard at night. Last year, while looking for a house, I saw some great houses that were priced very low in that neighborhood. Knowing of the issues, I didn't consider them, but property values are surely impacted due to the crime in the area.

I hope they get the 61st and Peoria area under control, there are a lot of nice houses, apartments, and condos in the area--and the people who live at Fairmont Terrace that are law abiding citizens shouldn't have to live under such conditions.
