Jordan announced his decision in an emailed statement that said officer Betty Shelby will return to active duty, but she won’t be patrolling Tulsa streets. Shelby was put on unpaid leave September 22 when she was charged with manslaughter in the shooting of 40-year-old Terence Crutcher.
A jury found Shelby not guilty Wednesday.

Jurors also said in a post-trial court filing on Friday that Shelby could have used a less-lethal method to subdue Crutcher and could have saved his life. The foreman of the jury also says in a three-page memo that jurors weren’t comfortable with the idea that Shelby was ‘blameless’ in Crutcher’s death.
