LAWTON, OK (KSWO)- We are getting our first glimpse inside of the Lawton Police Department’s basement since Oklahoma Natural Environmental specialists noted the existence of environmental hazards.

According to the city of Lawton, staff members needing to access the 3 sealed off offices in the basement are being asked to wear masks. However, Lawton Police Department staff have been relocated around town at Cameron University, Great Plains Technology Center, City Hall and available spaces on the first floor of the police department.

City officials hope the environmental hazards found in the basement of the Lawton Police Department will be removed by the end of the week. On Monday, the city met with a few contractors. They will choose one to perform the remediation that the city is hoping to start on Tuesday. A report on the tests performed on the entire basement, and H-VAC system is expected to be released on Tuesday. City officials say that report will reveal what is needed to be do to clear the basement of environmental hazards.
