Happy 20th year with the LPD, Captain Hines

Lawton_Last week, the Lawton Police Department held its first Academy Graduation in almost 20 years, and many academy grads from the 80s are no longer on the job - but, Captain Will Hines is.  He celebrated exactly 20 years serving Lawton on Wednesday.  "I was working in a grocery store, and I met a guy who was doing security there for us," said Hines.  "He was an off-duty police officer, and I just got to where I was running around with him a bit.  I got permission to ride with him, when he was on duty, and I fell in love with it.  I rode with him and I knew this was what I wanted to do," he said.

The off-duty officer Hines met at the grocery store now is the Chief of Police at the LPD, and Chief Ronnie Smith says Hines became part of his family.  "Practically raised him from the time he was 18 years old on," he said.  "Talked him into joining the force, got him interested in it.  He's come up through the ranks, did a good job, and he's doing a good job now."

Hines says he doesn't plan to leave the force any time soon.

Happy 20th Year, Detective Captain Hines!
