It is the goal of the Oklahoma City Police Department Truancy Unit to assist the Oklahoma City Public Schools in the reduction of truancy. The Department supports the premise than an individual’s best opportunity to become a productive adult begins with his education as a child. The Truancy Unit is designed to identify the school-age student who is not in school and bring him/her to the attention of the school administrators and parent(s)/guardian(s). This is done by identifying truants within the system, making contact with responsible guardians and/or students and addressing the issues causing the truancy. Truancy officers will use a variety of resources to encourage proper attendance in school including to issuing municipal citations to both parents and students.

We will commit ourselves to excellence and discharge our responsibilities professionally and courteously while making maximum utilization of available resources.
