The Lawton Public Safety Facility takes an innovative, hybrid approach to how the city provides public safety. The city, which formerly relied on outdated facilities for its public safety needs, chose to construct a new facility that would comprise multiple city departments as one connected building. The $33.7 million building was funded by the 2015 voter-approved sales tax extension and includes a police station, fire station, jail, and municipal court.
