Lawton police lieutenant retires after 27 years

LAWTON, OK (KSWO)- Lawton Police Department said goodbye to one of their own Friday.
After 27 years, Lieutenant Darryl Sutherland is returning.

A ceremony was held Friday in his honor at Lawton City Hall.
During his retirement speech, Lieutenant Sutherland spoke highly of a few fellow officers.
He said those are the people he's going to miss the most.

He says, he’s grateful to be where he is today.

“The rough times we had back in the day, a lot of times I didn't think I was going to make it home,” He said. “I’ve been dragged by two cars in my career, tore up my knees, shoulders. A lot of times I didn't think I was going to make it, but I did.”

During his time with the department, Sutherland served on the gang task force, and was a fifteen-year veteran with the SWAT team.

He said he was looking forward to making up for lost time with his wife and children, and also planned to fish more.
