Steve Kunzweiler, Tulsa County District Attorney
As a 25-year career prosecutor and your District Attorney my number one priority is public safety, the prosecution of violent criminals and protection of our most vulnerable children and elderly citizens who often cannot protect themselves.
While my job and that of my prosecution staff is to prosecute criminals, crime prevention is also a goal. I will focus particularly on early intervention with children to reduce child abuse and juvenile delinquency.
I want our families to be protected and our communities to thrive Sometimes it will require my prosecutors to put on their battle armor and stand in the face of evil. Sometimes it will require my prosecutors to hold out their hand to lift up a person who was victimized. For the next four years our mission will be one of service. On every day, in every case I want my prosecutors to ask themselves a simple question: “How can I better serve my community?”
I am honored to be your District Attorney and I pray for God’s grace to guide me on my path.
