In this work, we begin by showing that a holomorphic foliation with singularities is reduced if and only if its normal sheaf is torsion-free. In addition, when the codimension of the singular locus is at least two, it is shown that being reduced is equivalent to the reflexivity of the tangent sheaf. Our main results state on one hand, that the tangent sheaf of a codimension one foliation in P3 is locally free if and only if the singular scheme is a curve, and that it splits if and only if it is arithmetically Cohen–Macaulay. On the other hand, we discuss when a split foliation in P3 is determined by its singular scheme.
