  • Robert Bates' self-reported records appear to support allegations he patrolled before obtaining required training

    By Corey Jones, Tulsa World | Published: Sun, Aug 2, 2015

    Records filled out by former Tulsa County Reserve Deputy Robert Bates appear to support allegations from a leaked 2009 internal investigation that he was patrolling on his own well before receiving the training hours required to do so and despite being told to stop by a superior. The self-reported records indicate Bates roamed roads prior to even starting the field training required to perform those duties without the direct supervision of a certified deputy. They also indicate Bates issued warnings to motorists on two days he didn’t report doing any work for the Sheriff’s Office. The 73-year-old insurance executive spent most of his time working with the Drug Task Force, records indicate, as he was doing April 2 when he fatally shot Eric Harris during an undercover gun buy. Bates is charged with second-degree manslaughter in Harris’ death and has a jury trial set for Feb. 8.
