LPD Hosts Domestic Violence Forum

LAWTON Okla_ The Lawton Police Department hopes to help end the cycle of domestic violence by holding an educational forum next week.

"I Got Flowers Today" will be hosted in conjunction with the mayor's commission on the status of women. Lawton police hope the forum will not only educate people about domestic violence, but create awareness for a growing problem in our area.             

"I want to let people know that they're not alone in this," LPD Chief James Smith said. "If they find themselves a victim of this horrible crime, there is assistance out there."

Several speakers, including survivors of domestic violence, will be on hand to share stories of hope and ways to overcome. You're invited; it's free and set for October 24th, 6:00 PM at Lawton City Hall.
