Crime and community discussion to be part of City of Lawton/Cameron University event

Cameron University will collaborate with the City of Lawton and other community partners to host the “Mayor’s Panel Discussion on Crime and Community” from 1-3 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 12 in the City Hall Auditorium, 212 SW Ninth St. in Lawton. The program is free and open to the public.

The panel discussion will feature Mary Dzindolet and Rick Lowe from Cameron University; Christopher Hill from the University of Oklahoma; Nisha Wilson with the Oklahoma Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services; and Lawton Police Chief James Smith.

“We hope to gain better insight and understanding into the types of crime occurring in our community,” says Lawton Mayor Stan Booker. “It is only with education and collaborative efforts that we, as a community, can work toward solutions together."

Data and information concerning crime rate and research in relation to the Lawton Fort Sill area will be shared and analyzed during this event. A question-and-answer session will follow individual presentations from guests and the panel discussion. Lowe will serve as both a panelist and the lead moderator.
