TULSA -- The city of Tulsa is reforming jail services, after a proposal was approved on Wednesday. 

As a part of the vote, Tulsa is opening its own lock-up facility for municipal inmates, which eliminates the need to send people arrested on municipal counts to Tulsa County's David L. Moss Justice Center.

Overflow inmates will be transported to Okmulgee County.

Officials with the Tulsa County Sheriff's Office discussed on Tuesday the city of Tulsa's proposal to move municipal inmates from the Tulsa County Jail. Watch the full news Sheriff's Office conference from Tuesday in the video player above.
