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"

I will never forget the night of February 09, 1991 when that young rookie officer I had been training heard I was involved in an officer involved shooting and he came in the middle of the night to make sure I was ok. I can remember that young officer standing there in that USMC green jumpsuit he threw on and got right in to the department like it was yesterday. He Checked on me everyday afterward and talked with me whenever I needed. I will never forget that young officers smile, understanding and goodness. I will never forget his comanding yet gentle and understanding demeanor. I will never forget the feeling that young officer was "beyond his years" in maturity, courage, experience, dedication and integrity. I remember believing that this young officer would become a great leader someday.

That young officer was Daniel P. Stiles.

Dan was my friend. A great man. A real man. A marine. An excellent father and husband. It was obvious to me that he loved his family above and beyond all else. I am saddend beyond words that that there is an emptiness and void left in this world by his loss. I think of his wife and children who will now have a long and difficult road ahead of them. I will grieve for them all.

God speed Dan-O. I will remember the good things we did together at MPD. I will remember jumping in the pool in a tux at your wedding reception. I will never forget all of your help when I was down. You inspired me to get back up.

Thanks for all the code 10's Dan, especially through my own code 44. I wish I could have been there for you yesterday. I hope you are signal 37-43 with God now. You served your country and community with integrity and distinction. Your badge was NEVER tarnished. See you on the other side brother.....

Isaiah 6:8- "I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, Here am I; send me."

It is with great sorrow that we offer our sincerest condolences on the loss of Captain Stiles. As police cadets, we have been taught a great many things but one cannot teach how to cope with the loss of a brother in this new family we have been welcomed into. What we have learned is that this calling is not for the weak, the timid, or the feint of heart/character. Armed with that knowledge we may not have known the individual but we do know the type of man and can be eternally grateful for the ultimate sacrifice given in the protection of others. Our Thoughts and prayers are with you,

The 48th Police Academy, Norman, OK on behalf of themselves and the service they are about to join
