TULSA — Later this month, the Tulsa County Sheriff’s Office will team up with Tulsa Tech for an annual event titled “Living the Dream: Career Strategies for Success.”

The collaboration provides roughly 200 high school students from Hale, Webster, Memorial, and East Central High with an opportunity to explore jobs - or better yet, careers - which don’t involve a four-year degree and high student debt.

While the emphasis for the Sheriff’s Office is naturally law enforcement, there are a number of other tracks available for the students to consider, including welding, emergency medical services, cosmetology, aviation, and early childhood care and education.

Casey Roebuck, Communications Director for TCSO, tells KRMG the students can explore more than one track if they wish, as the event will continue for several hours.

She added that the sheriff’s office, like employers everywhere, is struggling to fill its ranks, and events like this give them the opportunity to showcase what they have to offer.

“We have to go to schools, we have to go to job fairs, we have to have events like this one to attract talent to our agency,” Roebuck said Tuesday.

She says they have a number of openings currently, man for jobs which don’t require a badge or firearm.

“We need everything from maintenance people, to clerks, to folks who work in our office. We have a bunch of jobs,” she told KRMG.
