In 2009, Tammie created a database to track homeless citizens of Oklahoma City. Each time an Oklahoma City officer encounters a homeless person, that person's race and sex are recorded and photographs are taken of any tattoos or other identifying marks. Officers also ask for information about the person's next of kin in case an emergency arises. Tammie recently implemented the 'Justice for a Cure' project in the state of Oklahoma, which became the second state in the nation in which members of law enforcement participate in the fight against breast cancer.
