Tulsa group meets after quadruple homicide

— TULSA — A public safety group formed after the shooting deaths of four women on Tulsa's south side has met for the first time with community leaders and police officials saying the city's Crime Stoppers hotline is important to helping solve crime — but that a limited advertising budget and fear among some residents to come forward with tips limits its effectiveness.

The Public Safety Intelligence Working Group heard informal testimony Tuesday at its first meeting.

The group was created after last week's shooting. Members plan to meet during the next month before presenting a report to city councilors.

Tuesday's topics centered on improving ways of getting citizens to come forward with anonymous crime tips.

There have been no arrests in the deaths of the women in the crime-plagued south Tulsa neighborhood.
