Safety Group Recommends Changes for Fairmont Terrace Area

Posted: Updated:

A public safety group assembled after the shooting deaths last month of 4 women in a crime-plagued Tulsa neighborhood has recommended investing in a new records management system.

The change would enable police to better process intelligence. The group also wants to develop new ways of funding the city's Crime Stoppers tip line. Recommendations from the Public Safety Intelligence Working Group's Tuesday meeting will be submitted to the City Council.

The group of community leaders, police and politicians met four times to discuss the blighted area of south Tulsa where homicides and other crimes have become commonplace in the past decade.

On Jan. 7, police discovered 23-year-old twin sisters Rebeika Powell and Kayetie Melchor, 33-year-old Misty Nunley and 55-year-old Julie Jackson dead at an apartment complex.

No one's been arrested.
