Dear New Officers,

We truly believe Tulsa Police Department picked the best of the best when you graduated from the Police Academy. We hope you serve the community with integrity and inspire our little black and brown kids to become you someday; we can change policing in this generation and for generations to come merely by having you on the force. Congratulations on your great accomplishment and good luck with this great responsibility.

With Love,

Black Wall St. Times’ Staff
