TULSA, Okla. - Work is underway to replace the Sally Port doors into the prisoner loading and unloading area at the David L. Moss Criminal Justice Center.
KRMG is told the enture process will take about 2 weeks and will require the re-routing of traffic into the David L. Moss prisoner area.
About 10 years ago, the current Sally Port doors were damaged significantly during a TPD pursuit while the jail was being operated by private contractors.
A suspect attempting to elude officers crashed into the doors.
Since re-acquiring the operation of David L. Moss in 2005, the Tulsa County Sheriff’s Office has attempted to fix and keep the current doors operational until labor and materials have become outdated.
Deputies say the installation of the new doors will increase the security of the David L. Moss Center while also making it more efficient for law enforcement agencies to access the booking area.
The Tulsa County Sheriff’s Office has budgeted $109,959.00 for the project.
Funding is part of the jail's $26 million annual budget.
