LAWTON, OK (KSWO) The Lawton Police Union and city leaders are set to meet again Thursday to try and work out a labor contract.

The new labor contract is set to take effect this summer. The Police Union is looking for a pay scale similar to Oklahoma Highway Patrol, which they said was about mid-level compared to other law enforcement agencies in the state. Members believe it will attract new officers and help keep existing ones, which in turn will lead to lower crimes in the city.
