The Guthrie Police Department held the first county-wide law enforcement meeting in more than a decade on Wednesday.

The purpose of the meeting was to allow all parties to gather and talk about crime trends, training needs and how the group, as a whole, can better serve all of Logan County citizens.

“We love to serve and are striving to find better ways to do it each and every day,” Guthrie Police Department’s Chief Don Sweger said.

Participating in the meeting, included police departments from Guthrie, Cashion, Langston, Langston University, Logan County Sheriff’s Office, Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation and the Logan/Payne County District Attorney’s Office.

Northcare, a mental health service provider, visited with the group about some exciting things expected to come to Logan County in the near future. The provider said they are hopeful to open a 24 hour mental health urgent care center, and to put iPads with each law enforcement agency to better serve citizens in immediate and dire need of mental health services.
