In an effort to form a bond between local law enforcement and children in the community, the Comanche Nation Police Department hosted its’ annual Cops & Kids Picnic on Sat. May 19. The event, held at the Comanche Nation Complex in Lawton, provided free food, bike giveaways, entertainment, games, pony rides and best of all - rides with officers in their police vehicles.
