Reflections for Deputy Sheriff Robbie Chase Whitebird

This is a cruel world we live in and to experience that at such a young age seems not fair. You and your family will be thought of and prayed for by your extended family at OCPD. God rest your soul and our prayers are with your family.

There are no words to express our grief over your loss of two fine officers in the performance of their duties. As senseless and tragic the loss, there is consolation that they did not die in vain. They were peacekeepers, making a difference one life at a time, maintaining the public order in the fabric of society. There is sometimes little thanks or appreciation for being the thin blue line between chaos and anarchy and a civilized symmetry, but we owe a debt of gratitude for those who lay their lives at the altar of freedom and liberty each and every day. Deputy Whitehead, thank you for your sacrifice and rest in peace. Blessing on your family and co-workers.

"We Remember the Officers"


We remember the officers who changed our lives,
The men and woman who protected us day and night,
People who respect for their dedication to the cause,
For when faced with danger, they never even pause.

We remember the officers who always stood true,
Whatever the color of uniform, brown gray or blue,
With pride and integrity they say "To serve and protect",
For the giving of their life, we offer our respect.

We remember the officers who we never really knew,
Persons strong enough to answer the challenge are few,
With heavy hearts we mourn the officers in eternal rest,
There's more to these people than the badge on their chest.


By Brad Miller

This hurts my heart when a kid wants to be the police, becomes the police, then never gets to retire as the police because of a punk that has no purpose in this world except to cause harm to others. I salute you Deputy Whitebird and GOD speed. Your parteners will pick up where you left off.

Wow, what can I say? We lost 2 great deputies in this tragedy. I worked with Chase on the evening shift until his recent move to day shift. Chase was the deputy you could always depend on to be there for you. He was like me in that we stayed in trouble for driving too fast but when it came to getting the job done, Chase could always be depended on. He worked so hard and was always trying to better himself. I can't imagine what it is going to be like when I go back to work and have to face this job without him. He was a friend, a co-worker, and above all, Chase was a hero. I don't say that foolishly because to me, Chase was a hero because he was made up of what heroes are made of and that is Pride, Integrity, Guts, and most of all Service to his fellow man. After all, that is why they call us P.I.G.S.! I love you man, and you will be sorely missed but God willing, I will see you again. God bless the family and friends of Chase Whitebird.

I was in the senior class at the police academy when Deputy Whitebird started the police academy. I remember going into his class with some of my other classmates to welcome them to CLEET. Deputy Whitebird always had a smile on his face during the academy. Deputy Whitebird was truly a hero.

Everyday I read this page hoping not to see a new name. Two is more than I can bear. I have no police officers in my family. I am just an elderly lady who was raised to respect police officers, and I do. Please know many people you will never know are weeping with you today. My prayers go out to the families and the fellow officers of this hero. Thank you for your service.

His Judgment Day:
The officer stood and faced his God, Which must always come to pass. He hoped his shoes were shinning, Just as brightly as his brass.
"Step forward now, Officer, How shall I deal with you? Have you always turned the other cheek To my church have you been true?"
The officer squared his shoulder and said, "No, Lord, I guess I aint, Because those of us who carry badges can't always be a saint.
I've had to work most Sundays, And at times my talk was rough, And sometimes I've been violent Because the streets are tough.
But I never took a penny That wasn't mine to keep.. Though I worked a lot of overtime, when the bills got too steep.
And I never passed a cry for help Though at times I shook with fear. And sometimes, God forgive me, I've wept an unmanly tear.
I know I don't deserve a place among the people here. They never wanted me around except to calm their fear.
If you've a place for me here, Lord, it needn't be so grand. I never expected or had too much, But if you don't...I'll understand.
There was silence all around the throne, where the saints often trod. As the officer waited quietly for the judgment of his God.
"Step forward now, Officer. You've borne your burdens well. Come walk a beat on heaven's streets, You've done your time in hell"

We offer our heartfelt sympathy to the family, friends and colleagues of Deputy Whitebird and we honor his distinguished service to the cause of justice and peace. Sadly, our nation has lost one of its finest citizens, a community has lost a friend and protector, and a family has lost an example of character and courage who they will love and respect forever.

To the family, friends, and colleagues of Deputy Whitebird, I would like you to know that a lot of people pray for you, and my hope is that their prayers will give you the strength necessary to move on. Just as you were always with him when he walked the beat or patrolled the streets, know that he will always be with you - wherever you may be. In the days to follow, may you be strengthened by the fact that Deputy Whitebird is a man distinguished by exceptional courage and will always be admired for his brave deeds and noble qualities. You, your family, and your sacrifice will never be forgotten.
