Meet the TeamBoard of Directors
Capt. Stephen Boyes
Member/Tulsa Police Dept.
I joined the Counseling & Recovery Services board in July 2018, replacing a retired Tulsa Police Captain who had served on the board for several years. I felt at the time that it was important to have a continuing voice on the board from local law enforcement in regards to their interactions and experiences they face daily with those in the community who deal with mental illness and substance abuse issues. I am a member of the board’s Program Development & Quality Assessment/Quality Improvement and Community Relations & Resource Development committees.
In addition to my professional experiences with those suffering from mental illness and substance abuse, I have also witnessed the effect of these issues on individuals in my personal life. This was another reason I chose to volunteer my time with the Counseling and Recovery Services board of directors.
I was born and raised in Tulsa and graduated from Tulsa Nathan Hale High School and Tulsa Community College (formerly Tulsa Junior College) with an Associate Degree in 1991. I received a Bachelor’s Degree in Political Science from the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville in 1994. At the University of Arkansas, I was active in student government leadership and Sigma Tau Gamma Fraternity leadership on campus.
I have served the City of Tulsa and it’s citizen with the Tulsa Police Department since 1996. I have served in all 3 Uniform Divisions and in the Detective Division during that time. I have been assigned as a police officer, a front-line supervisor (18+ years) and now am assigned as a shift commander for Riverside Division – Third (Evening) Shift. I am certified as a Crisis Intervention Training (CIT) team member (formerly Advanced Mental Health Response Officer training), a member of the department’s Peer 2 Peer team (peer counseling team) and a state certified law enforcement instructor. I also volunteer with the Tulsa Police Department’s Police Activity League (PAL) as a little league baseball coach and assistant scoutmaster (Tulsa Boys’ Home).
In my free time, I enjoy playing golf on many of the local courses, relaxing at Grand Lake of the Cherokees, attending Arkansas Razorback sporting events (football, basketball
