SSPD Policing Plan

The 2023 Policing Plan was reviewed by the City of Sand Springs city administration. Later, it was presented to the Sand Springs City Council and adopted by resolution after a public hearing. Again, every effort has been made to reaffirm that the philosophies discussed herein are that of our community as a whole and not that of just the Police Department and that they are truly placed into practice.

One aspect that we are proud of the Poling Plan,  is that we have noted throughout the document how it complies with or exceeds the provisions of the Final Report of The President's Task Force on 21st Century Policing.  You may read a copy of that document by clicking on the hyperlink and looking in the downloads folder of your browser.

One item referenced in the plan is the plan for SSPD to no longer investigate officer involved shootings or in custody deaths when SSPD officers are involved. You can see a copy of the agreement between the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation and the Sand Springs Police Department here: OSBI-SSPD MOU.

Transparency is a philosophy that the Sand Springs Police Department embraces. It is important for our citizens to know what their police department does and why we make certain decisions.
