Reflections for Police Officer Nathan Hayden Heidelberg

You served our community with honor, bravery, and professionalism, and for that I thank you brother. My family and I live in the city that you safeguarded. We slept soundly at night under the blanket of protection that you provided. You will be honored and remembered, always.

To MPD, we mourn with you. MCSO will be there for you. You were there for us when we lost Mike and we could not have gotten through it without you. Having been in your shoes I can tell you that you have some rough days and weeks ahead of you. I can also tell you, that this will make you stronger. I promise. Hang in there, look sharp, stand tall, be proud. You have an agency full of amazing officers, top to bottom, and I'm proud to stand with you. All of you will be in my family's thoughts and prayers. Honored Semper.

I'm going to miss our game nights were we sucked at syncing up our LEO brains with our game night nerd crew. You were a good man, great cop, and mediocre board game

I know we will all miss you and do our best to honor you. Walk peacefully now brother for it's our turn to carry the burden.
