Lawton Police Department Officer Commendation

Everybody appreciates recognition for a job well done. If a Police Department employee goes out of their way or does something special and you would like for them to be recognized, the best way is to submit something in writing to the Chief of Police. In the note or letter, be sure to mention the officer's name (if you know it), the date and time of the event, any witnesses, and a brief description of what happened.

Commendation Procedure

Everybody appreciates recognition for a job well done. If a Police Department employee goes out of their way or does something special and you would like for them to be recognized, the best way is to submit something in writing to the Chief of Police. In the note or letter, be sure to mention the officer's name (if you know it), the date and time of the event, any witnesses, and a brief description of what happened. Mail your commendation to:

Chief of Police James Smith
Lawton Police Department
#10 SW 4th Street
Lawton, OK 73501

Your original correspondence will be photocopied so that the original can be given to the employee and a copy can be placed in their permanent personnel file. The circumstances of the event may be sufficient to warrant the officer being nominated for Officer of the Quarter based on the merits that you are able to provide. If you do not have the time to write a note, a phone call to the Watch Commander will result in a form being completed and submitted in a similar fashion as that described for original correspondence. Either way, your comments provide valuable feedback that can make someone's day.
