LAWTON, OK (KSWO) - The Comanche County Courthouse welcomed in the new director of the county Juvenile Bureau.

Brenda Meyers was sworn in Friday afternoon as director of the Bureau and the juvenile detention center.

Meyers has worked with the Bureau for 19 years, and will oversee the supervision of Comanche County's juveniles on probation.

She said she was grateful for her position, and the positive effect she's had on county youths heading down a dark path.

"Instead of continuing down that path and maybe ending up in the penitentiary, being able to say 'you know what, Ive made a mistake, Ive learned from it, Ive gone through some counseling, Ive done some community service, I've paid some fines, and I've learned that I dont want to go down that road, Meyers said.

Meyers says her first focus is on getting an effective juvenile drug program up and running.
