Evans and Rominger Memorial Ceremonies

Oklahoma Highway Patrol officials will join the Oklahoma City Police Department in commemorating the deaths of Trooper Matt Evans and Officer Jeff Rominger in two special memorial ceremonies.

On Friday, August 31, 2000, these officers lost their lives in the line of duty. A wreath will be placed in their honor as a bagpiper plays a rendition of "Amazing Grace." The OCPD memorial will be at 701 West Colcord, the south entrance at 6:45 a.m. The OHP memorial will be held at Department of Public Safety headquarters, NE 36th Street and ML King Blvd. at 7:45 a.m. at the Law Enforcement Memorial Site.

Family members, coworkers, troopers, officers and OHP cadets will attend the ceremonies. Media are invited to attend. There will be no interview conducted by the Evans family but a statement will be made by an agency spokesperson.
