LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Around 100 people attended the Retired and Former LPD Officer Reunion party today at the LPD Academy at 508 Davis Dr.

The event allows former and retired officers to meet back with each other and get some insight on departmental changes and updates. Attendees included dispatchers, civilian employees and their families, and retired and former officers.

The officer who travelled the furthest was Earl Ballou, a retired corporal, who came from San Antonio. The oldest officer in attendance was James Prothro, a former lieutenant, who graduated from the police academy in 1955.

During this time all had the opportunity to meet with LPD's specialized units like SWAT, Community Engagement, Motorcycle and Mustang Units, Mounted Patrol, K9, the Homeless Outreach Team and the Crime Scene Unit.
