Bryan Mitchell Hebert

Police Officer Bryan Hebert was killed when his patrol car was intentionally struck by the driver of another vehicle during a pursuit.

Other officers had initiated the pursuit of a man wanted for assaulting his mother and grandmother. Officer Hebert had stopped his patrol car at the intersection of Dowlen Road and Ivanhoe Lane and was removing a reflective vest and stop sticks from his trunk when the suspect veered from the travel lane and struck his patrol car head-on. The collision knocked the patrol car into Officer Hebert, who was still standing behind it.

Officer Hebert was transported to Christus St Elizabeth Hospital where he succumbed to his injuries.

The driver of the vehicle was charged with capital murder charges in connection with Officer Hebert's death. He pled no contest and was sentenced to life in prison in March 2013.

Officer Hebert had served with the Beaumont Police Department for 10 years. He is survived by his parents, sister, and grandparents.

In 2012 I had the privilege of riding in Officer Hebert's honor during the Police Unity Tour. As a result I have come to know Bryan's family, his Mom, Dad and sister and his friends. Although we never met I've come to know Bryan through these wonderful people. Their love and faith have inspired me and their daily pain from his loss breaks my heart. Please keep Bryan, his family and friends in your thoughts and prayers.

Blessed are those who mourn for they shall be comforted.
