Welcome to our first post in our Meet The Officers series! We’re starting off big with the man, the myth, the legend – Sean ‘Sticks’ Larkin
No doubt we all know who Sean is by now. But for those who don’t, Sticks is a 43 year old Sargeant from the Tulsa Gang Unit in Oklahoma, of which he has been in for the past 13 years.
Sean got the last name Sticks from his internship with the Tulsa Police Department. During a pursuit, Sticks helped capture a suspect and a fellow officer at the time said “Hey stick, you can’t do that. You don’t have a gun. You’re not a cop” and it has stuck ever since. Although fellow officers, the crooks, and attorneys refer to him as Sticks, Sean says he prefers to be called Sean outside of work.
Sean is a single Dad to two kids, Alyssa and Nathan.
Although Tulsa has ended their contract with A&E you can still catch Sticks in studio with Dan Abrams on a fairly regular basis. Which is a definitely a good thing considering he is probably one of the most popular Officers ever to feature on Live PD.
