The Metro Lawdawgs was establlished in 2003. The entire concept came from a group of officers
assigned to the 20's district at Central Midnights.
The idea was to create a football team that could represent the
police department. Officers regardless of rank were to come together as a team. Lt. Melvin Brown was chosen to
Head coach the first metro Lawdawgs Football team. All of the practices , games and hard work were to be done on each
officers own time. This football team represents the dream of many ex athletes who would like to play "just one more time".
Some of the players involved did not get the chance to play in school and can have their second chance to play
the beloved game.
The positive image this team reflects on the police department, mirrors
the pride of being a Metro Police Officer.
