Today we honor Tulsa’s Heroes — those police officers who have given the ultimate sacrifice to our city having died in the line of duty. This is always an emotional event, but an important one. And, lest we forget, here is the Oath of Office that every officer takes when they are sworn in:
OATH OF OFFICE
I, [name], having been duly appointed a Police Officer of the City of Tulsa, and a Peace Officer of the State of Oklahoma, do solemnly swear, that I will defend, enforce, and obey the Constitution and Laws of the United State, the State of Oklahoma, and the Charter and Ordinances of the City of Tulsa.
That I will obey the lawful orders of my superior officers and the regulations of the Tulsa Police Department.
That I will protect the Rights, Lives, and Property of all citizens and uphold the honor of the Police Profession.WITH MY LIFE, if need be.
This I solemnly swear.
We remember, and we honor each and every one of our fallen brothers and sisters.
