To my Langston Community:
As most of you may know, I was diagnosed with colon cancer about two weeks ago. Since that diagnosis, the medical professionals felt it would be best for me to have a right colectomy to remove the tumor. I have had the surgery and had returned home. I will be healing for several weeks, along with balancing the possibility of chemotherapy. The future is positive and I will accept the challenge as I do with everything else.
I want to reassure the community that I will continue to be Chief of Police and oversee the department; however, due to incision locations and such, wearing my uniform is not advised at this time. My officers, mostly unpaid volunteers, are stepping up to make sure the community is covered, along with the generous assistance of the Langston University Police Department. I want everyone to know that I love my community, and anxiously await for the time I can be back in uniform, and interacting with the public again.
I also want to thank all the well wishes, prayers and support that not only myself, but my children, have recieved.
If anyone has any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me.


Chief Kelly.


The Langston Police Department and the Langston University Police Department will be conducting a 25 cadet reserve academy tentatively starting January 7, 2019. Any agency interested in sending cadets to the academy, please email me at [email protected].

Also the Langston Police Department will be accepting applications for certified/non-certified reserve officers. If interested, please contact me at [email protected]


The Langston Police Reserve Academy comes to a close this evening. I am happy to announce that ALL ten of the cadets passed the certification test. The average for the certification was 88%.

I am very proud of these guys as they have represented not only themselves, but their families and department, in an exceptional manner.


Tonight the Langston Police Department Reserve Academy cadets will be taking their CLEET Certification test. Send a prayer to these 10 men who has sacrificed so much time and energy to complete the training, to further serve their communities.


To all our Coyle Neighbors:
I am sad to announce that at the end of August, the Langston Police Department will no longer be providing law enforcment services to the town of Coyle. The Coyle City Council held a special meeting sometime in the past couple of weeks and voted to terminate the contract. The reason for this, as it was stated to me, was they could not afford to pay for the services. Also, they have been told that LCSO will be providing a School Resource Officer for the school. On September 1, all calls will need to be placed with the Logan County Sheriffs Department.

Thank you all for the support during the past year.



We are considering having another reserve academy at the beginning of the year, 2019. We are looking to see if any agency or individual looking for an agency would be interested in going.

On July 13, 2018, the Langston Police Department took a report of an unconsciousness female laying in front of a residence in the 300 block of Commercial.

Upon arrival of the officer, the female had been moved to a private vehicle and Guthrie FD EMS was contacted.
Further investigation determined that the female had allegedly been given anti-psychotic/sleep aid prescription medication, along with other intoxicants that was ingested.

The suspect, name withheld at this time, then sexually assaulted the female on several occasions and then left her in the yard of the previously mentioned residence.

On July 15, 2018, Chief of Police Kelly Banwart and Corporal Jesse Trawick interviewed the suspect at the Logan County Jail, where the suspect gave a confession of the events of the early morning hours of July 13th. Charges have been presented to the Logan County District Attorney's Office.

The Langston Police Department is asking that any individual that may have had any similar incidents occur to them or may have any details regarding this case, to please contact Chief Kelly Banwart.

OHP Seeks Witnesses To Fatal Crash

In the early morning hours of Saturday, July 14, 2018, around 2:30 am a white 2008 Dodge Avenger four-door was northbound on Interstate 35 south of East 2nd Avenue in Edmond, the vehicle departed the roadway to the right and overturned. As a result of the collision, a three-year-old child who was an occupant of the Dodge was killed.

The driver, Xavier Trevon Ware a 20-year-old male from Moore was identified as the driver of the Dodge, the mother of the child; Alexis Tasha Ware a 24-year-old female was a passenger. A witness to the collision immediately called 911 and OHP and Edmond Police, Fire, and EMS were sent to the scene.

Before the arrival of first responders, Trevon and Alexis Ware found the three year-old who had been ejected from the vehicle and left the scene on foot. Approximately one hour later Xavier and Alexis flagged down a motorist in Logan County requesting assistance for the three-year-old child. OHP along with Logan County Sheriff’s Deputies and Guthrie Fire Department responded to find the child unresponsive. The child was transported to Mercy Logan County Medical Facility where the three-year-old was pronounced dead.

OHP troopers took Trevon Ware into custody, he refused to provide a sample of his blood and troopers obtained a search warrant and a sample was obtained.

Trevon Ware was transported to the Oklahoma County Jail for Murder in the 2nd degree and Child Endangerment DUI.

OHP needs any witnesses who observed the collision or observed two adults carrying a child to call 405-425-2323. OHP has interviewed witnesses who stated there might be witnesses who were parked at Buffalo Wild Wings or Whataburger and we request they contact the OHP.


I know there will be several questions and statements regarding the passing of SQ 788. As the Chief of the Langston Police Department, my officers and I will gather the necessary information and training during the transition period of the historical vote. It is the mission of the Langston Police Department to support any law that is in effect, and WILL NOT impose any personal opinions regarding the vote.

However, I do want to remind everyone that the Act is not in effect. My department will still enforce possession of ma*****na as we always have until the Act is in effect. I also want to remind everyone that once the Act is in effect, that we will enforce all requirements of the act (i.e. possession amount, having the required medical card, etc) We will also become vigilant in the enforcement of driving while impaired by the used of ma*****na.

I also want to take the time to thank everyone for the continued support of the Langston Police Department.
