Former Officer Brian Hayden Killed in Crash

Deputy Brian Hayden, EoW: 19 April, 2012It is with much sadness that we report the death of one of our fellow officers.  On Thursday evening April 19, 2012 at approximately 9:30 pm, Deputy Brian Hayden was responding to a shots fired call in Choctaw County and was involved in a collision with a Choctaw Tribal Nation police officer who was responding to the same call. Hayden sustained fatal injuries and died at the scene.  The Tribal officer sustained serious injuries and was flown to a hospital in Texas and is in stable condition and expected to make a full recovery.

Before going to work as a Deputy for the Choctaw County Sheriff’s Office in January of this year, Officer Hayden served at the Nicoma Park Police Department from 1993 until the end of 2011.  He served as both a Reserve and full-time Officer spending the last several years of his time with us as our K9 handler.  Lt. Eric Crews knew Hayden the longest, coming to work for NPPD on the same day. He says, “Brian and I started at Nicoma Park on the same day. We went through the reserve academy together and have driven many miles as partners.  It’s difficult to put into perspective how officers feel when we get the news of a fallen friend.  It takes your breath away and hits you square in the heart.  Brian’s untimely death has not only impacted his family, wife and children, but law enforcement in multiple jurisdictions.  This speaks volumes of his character and the respect he has within the law enforcement community.”

Brian was a true professional a, “cop’s cop.”  He was a highly valued member of this agency, but more importantly he was our friend.  His loss has hit all of us very hard and we will miss him very much.   

Deputy Hayden’s funeral is scheduled for Thursday, April 26 in Valiant, OK where family, friends and colleagues will remember Brian and say their goodbyes to him one last time.  Lt. Crews adds, “We will continue to share funny stories and we will continue to cry tears for our partner who is now on eternal patrol on Heaven’s streets. While coping with our loss I hope everyone considers how Brian impacted our lives.  Within each of us a little bit of Brian lives.  May God always ride as our silent partner.”

Deputy Hayden leaves behind a wife and four children.  We ask that you please keep them in your prayers.  A memorial fund has been established in Brian’s honor at the First Bank of Hugo where donations may be made.  The address is: First Bank of Hugo, Brian and Tabitha Hayden, 1501 E. Jackson, Hugo, OK 74743
