For Highway Patrol Lieutenant D. Heath Meyers:

The duties of the law-officer on patrol are varied and many. The pursuit of violators at high speed, though criticized by many as often excessive, is a situation demanding discipline when considering high traffic and myriad contingencies. That said, the individual law-officer's job is fraught with decisions made on the spot. It is unfair to second-guess any situation when not involved. Indeed our training is for this very reason.
Cries for change are loud - but these situations will forever continue to occur.

We regret that Heath would lose his life in this horrific unfolding of events, but the nature of our very duty is to apprehend and arrest. Every real cop knows our risks and we take them - a hero when we succeed and a rash of mostly unfair criticism when we fail. We are law-officers and stand apart from the faint-hearted.

Heath stands a hero in our eyes - forever. The law-officers involved are sure to suffer the pangs of redefining the situation for sure, but we all have taken that next step to live-up to our own and other's expectations as carefully as we can. What happens afterward is simply the nature and fiber of our job. We accept it. We act.

We pray for Heath's family, co-workers, friends and all who care about him. May they be ready to reach-out in support of one another.

We are proud to render Lt. D. Heath Meyer, a soldier-of-the-law, a proud and final salute.

Rest in peace my Oklahoma brother, we have the watch now. Thank you for your service, you will be missed by all. You have been an example to all of us in staying in the fight and not giving in, an inspiration to all behind the thin blue line. We thank you for the example and the bar you have set and didn't even know it. God bless the family, friends, and co-workers of Lt Heath Meyer during this time of tragic and sudden loss. We mourn your death and grieve your passing but we salute you, your family, and your OHP brothers in this time of pain.

Heath we were friends and eventho we wore different uniform colors. We both worked the same streets and dealt with the same desperados. I was there with you in there in the Trauma TX Room. I could not bear the thought of you being all alone amongst strangers.

God will grant you eternal rest. Be assured that We Have The Watch From here.
