Lawton Police Department Police Explorer

Educate and involve youth in police operations to stir interest in criminal justice fields.

The Lawton Police Department is excited to announce that we have started our Police Explorer program again. Law Enforcement Explorer Post 112 was first chartered in 1973. The purpose of Law Enforcement Exploring is to educate and involve youth in police operations in order to interest them in possible law enforcement/criminal justice careers. Through their involvement, youth in the Law Enforcement Explorer program develop an awareness of the complexities of police service and learn valuable lessons about the criminal justice system, public service, citizenship and volunteerism and most importantly, leadership.

The Explorers meet the first Monday of every month at the Lawton Police Training Center. Please contact Lieutenant James Churchwell for more information about the program at
