Canine Unit

The Lawton Police Department currently has a total of three K-9 teams. Lt. Brian Shotts supervises the K-9 section. Two of the K-9 teams are assigned to patrol, and one is assigned to the Special Operations Section. The Lawton Police K-9 teams have been used to track down dangerous suspects that had attempted to flee from crime scenes and sniff vehicles and buildings for hidden narcotics. All five K-9 teams have proven to be great assets to the police department. Many suspects have been apprehended, evidence has been located and thousands of dollars worth of narcotics have been removed from the streets.
