This ordinance would create a new Title 16, Tulsa Revised Ordinances, entitled "Oversight and Monitoring of Police Department." It establishes the Office of the Independent Monitor (OIM), to monitor certain investigations of Tulsa Police Department personnel, and to provide policy guidance including, but not limited to, evaluations of community policing strategies; best practices from other cities; and other policy objectives as determined by the Mayor, City Council, or Chief of Police. The OIM will also provide independent community engagement, outreach, and initial complaint filing assistance, consistent with best practices.

Chapter 2 of the new Title establishes a Citizen Oversight Board, to assess the effectiveness of the OIM, make policy-level recommendations to the Mayor and Chief of Police, and address other issues of concern identified by the community, members of the COB, the OIM, the Chief of Police, the City Council, or the Mayor.
