Oklahoma City Police To Still Enforce Ban On Topless Women In Public

The Oklahoma City Police Department is warning residents that they will still be enforcing a city ordinance after a recent court decision in Colorado.

In an email to KFOR 4, the Oklahoma City Police Department said, "We will continue to enforce the law as outlined by City Ordinance and State Law as this preliminary injunction issued by the 10th Circuit Court is in reference to an appeal specific to the City of Ft. Collins in Colorado. Therefore, someone in OKC who is in violation of the law could be cited and/or jailed as this is a misdemeanor crime."

The Oklahoma City Public Indecency Ordinance defines nudity as the following: “the showing of the human male or female genitals, pubic area, or buttocks with less than a fully opaque covering; or the showing of the female breast with less than a fully opaque covering of any part of the nipple.”
