Lawton city manager announces delay in policy changes to the police department

Posted: Updated:

LAWTON, Okla._ Angry reaction from councilmen Keith Jackson, Jay Burk, and Doug Wells, after learning about a delay in implementing a change to the promotion policy in the police department.

Jackson asked City Manager Bryan Long about the change, and Long said he consulted with the police chief and the union before signing off on it. The city had previously announced the new policy would take effect May 1, but now it won't be implemented until January 1.

Jackson, Burk, and Wells all expressed their displeasure with Long for not being informed about the change ahead of time. The promotions policy was altered after a private investigation into complaints filed by Lawton police officers.
