Lawton Citizens Police Academy separates fact from fiction

LAWTON, OK (TNN) - Lawton Citizens Police Academy students got to talk facts versus fiction Thursday night.

While detectives and crime scene investigators are some of the most portrayed roles in movies and TV shows, academy participants got to meet some real ones from LPD who were happy to answer their questions.

“They’re learning what detectives do, what our CID unit does when they go out to crime scenes things they need to collect. How citizens and the public in that community can help on a crime scene if something were to occur and they were there," said Sgt. Timothy Jenkins of Lawton Police Department.

Students also got to hear from Crime Stoppers officials on how the tip reward program works.

Tonight was week eight of the 13 week program.
