Former Tulsa police officer Betty Shelby will be working for the Rogers County Sheriff's Office as an unpaid reserve deputy.
Sheriff Scott Walton with the Rogers County Sheriff's Office said Shelby has been hired and there will be a news conference held Thursday morning.
Walton said Shelby went through the application process and a background check. She will be fully deputized and able to perform all duties including going out on patrol.
In an interview back in May with Tulsa's Channel 8, Walton said he would hire Shelby. He has been outspoken in his support of her. But said that same support was never shown from her own department.
