Lawton, Okla._Dozens of Lawton Police Officers gathered at Tuesday's city council meeting as a message of unity to voice their feelings over the looming shift changes that are set to take place in the department next week.
Officers feel they have been blindsided by a change in schedule that would switch them from four 10-hour workdays to five 8-hour workdays. As a result of the shift change, they're worried there won't be enough officers on the street throughout the day.
Since it was not on the council's agenda, no action could be taken. But, Mayor Fred Fitch advised them he would discuss the matter with the council further.
Fitch said they will make the decision that is the most financially responsible for the entire community.
