Lake Saint Louis Police Upgrade To New Reality Check Video Cards

Lake St Louis card front & back no passwordThe Lake Saint Louis Police Department in Lake Saint Louis, Missouri has upgraded from the Reality Check Program DVD’s to the Reality Check Program Video cards.

Chief Mike Force a twenty five (25) year chief of police, with 42 years in law enforcement is one of the most pro-active chiefs in the United States. The Mayor, all the City Alderman, City Administrator, Chief Force, Deputy Chief DiGiuseppi and the entire senior staff of the Lake Saint Louis Police Department are always looking for ways to help the community.

In an interview with a newspaper, Larry Lawton was asked about being an honorary police officer with Lake Saint Louis PD and how did he get the idea to develop the Reality Check Program Video Cards for police agencies.

” It was such an honor to be sworn in as this nations only ex-con to become an honorary police officer. I take that oath very seriously. As a man who travels the country, I can say without hesitation that Lake Saint Louis is one of the most pro-active cities in the country and that made becoming part of Lake Saint Louis easy. Chief Force said to me when we first met, it is all about choices Larry, and you are doing the right thing.

Chief Force pictureIMG_1974The chief loved the DVD’s, but he is a forward thinker and is always looking for ways to help his community. With that in mind, I kept thinking about ways to incorporate technology with human interaction. Hence, the cards were developed. The one hour Reality Check Program is on a small card the size of a business card. Since the cards are wallet sized the officers and all the staff can carry the cards and they have another tool to help the community 24/7..

Working with Chief Force, Deputy Chief DiGiuseppi and all the people in Lake Saint Louis is an honor. Chief Forces hired men with values who want to help their community and young people, that says it all. I consider Chief Force a mentor and good friend.” said :Larry Lawton.

Reality Check In-School Suspension Program

in-school suspension



1.     the process of receiving or giving systematic instruction, especially at a school or university.

The Reality Check In-School Suspension program uses the success of the Reality Check Program to open a young person’s eyes and redirect bad behavior.

One of the jobs of schools and teachers is to help a young person grow into the best they can be. Education is key and one of the best places to educate a person is in school. When a young person does something wrong or against the rules, he or she needs to be held accountable and educated to correct that bad behavior.

Using the Reality Check In-School Suspension Program gives schools a one of a kind tool they can use to help a young person become the best they can be.

The Reality Check Program consists of four parts:

1.     Larry Lawton’s prior life

2.     What prison is really like – not what you see on TV

3.     What you will lose – freedom, family, etc…

4.     Avoiding and Dissolving Bad Associations.

In-School suspension is necessary in some situations. Correcting bad behavior at the onset helps everyone.

1.     The student sees what direction they are headed and has the opportunity to change that bad behavior.

2.     The school satisfies giving discipline while also sticking to their core principles of educating the student.

3.     The community benefits by keeping a student in-school and correcting a person’s behavior for the long haul.

In-School suspension is very important, because education is the answer and we all know if we don’t keep educating our youth, we will end up incarcerating them.

Larry Lawton is the MC at the Miami-Dade Schools Police Union Instillation Banquet

Miami_Dade_Schools_Police_Department (1)Miami Dade Schools Police Union 1Larry Lawton was the Master of Ceremonies and Keynote Speaker at the Miami-Dade Schools Police Union Instillation Banquet at the intercontinental hotel in Miami, Florida on January 28, 2017.

Police officers, teachers and the leaders of those agencies are some of the most important people in society. Being on the front-lines and working with the future leaders of our country is job with enormous pressure and responsibility, but with little to no public glory. The reason the people who work with young people do what they do, is because they care deeply about the future of the country and helping young people be the best they can be. Not for the glory to be sure.

IMG_0537IMG_0535“Working with D.A.R.E. Officers, School Resource Officers, Chiefs of Police, Teachers, Principals, Administrators and elected officials who truly care about young people is so rewarding. As a man who works with young people on a daily basis, I can say without reservation, that seeing a young person change and “get it” is the best feeling on the planet.” said Lawton
