LPD celebrates annual banquet

LAWTON, OK (KSWO) - Lawton police officers and their families gathered for their annual awards banquet and dinner.

Officers and civilian employees were nominated by their fellow co-workers and the public for 2015.

But the event wasn't just an awards ceremony. Officers brought along family and friends while celebrating their accomplishments.

"I think it's great for officers and their families to hang out and have a great time and show support for the police department and everything that they do," Detective Charles Whittington said.

Among tonight's winners were Erlene Maroon for Civilian of the Year, Jeff Pollard for Officer of the Year, Aaron Molloy for Non-uniform Officer of the Year and Cliff Blasengame for Supervisor of the Year.
