Fingerprint Services

Fingerprinting is on Thursdays only from 10:00am until 1:00 PM, and is on a first come, first serve basis.  You must bring the appropriate forms required by the company or organization requesting the fingerprinting and a current form of state-issued identification with your photograph.

If you are not a resident of Jenks, you can contact the Tulsa County Sheriff’s Office for more information on fingerprinting services, tulsacounty.org.

Partnership with School District
The Jenks Police Department recognizes that the health and safety of the youth in our community is one of our greatest responsibilities. As such, the Police Department has formed a working relationship with the Jenks Campus Police to provide additional Officer response to the Campus Police as needed. JPD continually strives to maintain a positive relationship and a bond of trust between students and law enforcement in the school environment.

Community Relations
We can accomplish our goal of positive community relations through effective communication, establishing a dialogue with all the diverse members of our community and remaining committed to being transparent in all that we do in the organization.

The Jenks Police Department recognizes that this is your police department. We work for, and with you. You are our customers and we are committed to providing excellence in customer service. We welcome input from any individual, not just through organized meetings or as part of a group.

If you have any questions or concerns about how your police department is providing police service to your community, we encourage you to contact us by telephone at (918) 299-6311 or through the contact page on this website.

Traffic Enforcement
Unless posted otherwise, the speed limit in Jenks is 25 miles per-hour.

Considering the amount of feedback JPD receives from citizens, it is clear that traffic problems are some of the most important issues for the entire community. Responding to those complaints with pro-active and effective traffic education and enforcement is a challenge and a responsibility the Police Department recognizes and readily accepts because traffic problems impact the safety of drivers and pedestrians in the entire community. 

The Officers focus their enforcement efforts on traffic violations that are the primary causes for traffic accidents at locations where those traffic violations occur most frequently. 

Drug or Pharmaceutical Take-Back Program (AKA: Operation Medicine Cabinet)
The Jenks Police Department houses a permanent drug receptacle box in the main lobby of the Patrol Division building at 525 West A Street (the Police building just to the south of the City Hall building), as part of the Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotic’s (OBN) Drug or Pharmaceutical Take-Back Program.  Residents can safely dispose of unwanted household prescriptions, medications, drugs, etc.

Residents can bring in unwanted drugs and medications, including prescriptions and over-the-counter items for FREE disposal.

The following items can be deposited in the medication drop boxes:

  •        Over-the-counter medications
  •        Prescription medications
  •        Medication samples
  •        Medications for household pets
  •        Medicated lotions or ointments


The following items are NOT accepted:

  •        No needles or “sharps” (return to pharmacy for free disposal)
  •        No hazardous waste
  •        No thermometers
  •        No lost and found materials
  •        No empty containers
  •        No pharmaceuticals from businesses/professionals

If medications are removed from their original containers please place them in airtight, zip baggies before placing in the drug receptacle.  Even though the contents are collected by an OBN official and destroyed in an incinerator, please remove or scratch-out all personal information, including name, address and phone number to protect your identification.

Neighborhood Watch
All patrol officers perform random neighborhood and business checks on a daily/nightly basis.

The Jenks Police Department has specific employees designated to focus on developing, coordinating, and implementing crime prevention programs such as Neighborhood Watch. If your home-owners group or neighborhood doesn’t currently have an organized Neighborhood Watch, feel free to contact our offices to find out how to get more information on setting one up.
