LAWTON, OK (KSWO) -Two organizations partnered up Thursday to honor several members of local law enforcement when it comes to enforcing alcohol laws.

The Wichita Mountains Prevention Network and the Alcoholic Beverage Law Enforcement Commission partnered up for a law enforcement appreciation luncheon. 

The organizations honored members of the community who go above and beyond. Lawton Police Lt. John Schwenk was voted as the Lawton Fort Sill Comanche County Officer of the Year, Lawton Public Schools Chief David Hornbeck received the Care award, Cache Police Officer Dylan King was voted Rookie of the Year and Comanche County Assistant District Attorney Randy Worthen was voted Prosecutor of the Year.

Joe Daniels, with the ABLE Commission, says they felt it was important to honor officers who go above and beyond.

"We want to come in here and show them that we appreciate what they are doing, that we recognize that it's a lot of work. I guarantee you arrest a drunk kid and by the time you get a parent there and get the charges, the kid is home a lot quicker than you are," Daniels said.

With prom season around the corner, several officers stuck around for a refresher course on dealing with underage drinking after the ceremony.

    More than half of the 17 people killed when a tourist boat sank on a Branson lake were members of the same Indiana family, and they likely wouldn't have been on the ill-fated trip but for a ticket mix-up.
