CLAREMORE, Okla. (AP) - The district attorney of Rogers County says she’s reached out to law enforcement officials involved in a grand jury petition brought against her office.

Janice Steidley made the pledge Wednesday, a day after a multicounty grand jury issued a 74-page report that found no probable cause to charge or remove her from office.

The grand jury’s report said the allegations - including alleged witness tampering - were not criminal in nature and didn’t support an accusation for removal.

However, the report found that an investigation “revealed an alarming lack of respect, civility and overall professionalism” in the district attorney’s relationship with Rogers County law enforcement agencies that has elevated tensions.

The investigation was requested in a petition that was signed by more than 8,000 Rogers County residents.
