Tulsa Tech Student, Instructor Share a History

A new Tulsa County sheriff’s deputy and a Tulsa Technology Center instructor met in class decades after a deadly shooting.

Their story, reported by KJRH in Tulsa, began when Michael Brown, then an officer in the Tulsa Police Department, had to notify the family after a man was shot and killed by police. The man’s daughter, in elementary school at the time, was among the first class to graduate from the Tulsa County Sheriff’s Office’s new academy.

The new deputy, Aaliyah Sanchez, was a student of Brown’s at Tulsa Tech, where he is the senior instructor of the criminal justice program.
