Law enforcement hall of fame to honor three

OKLAHOMA CITY – Three new inductees will join the ranks of the Oklahoma Law Enforcement Museum and Hall of Fame during the 13th annual induction ceremony. Those honored are: Jerry Cason, Norman; Bo Leach, Oklahoma City, and Gary Rudick, of Port St. Lucie, Florida.

The ceremony begins at 1 p.m. on March 5, 2022 at the Fraternal Order of Police Lodge, 1621 S. Agnew Ave. in Oklahoma City. Director of the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation, Ricky Adams, will present the Bill Tilghman awards and Lori Fullbright from Newson6 in Tulsa will emcee the event.

Gary Rudick, a retired Tulsa Police Captain, who began his career with the Muskogee Police Department and later served as Chief of Police for the Durant Police Department and Tulsa Public Schools, made contributions in education through safe school programs.

Educators from across the state praised Rudick for his efforts to support safe school initiatives and crisis response in the districts.

While working for Oklahoma Homeland Security, Rudick developed vulnerability assessments for Oklahoma public schools.

His work with the Oklahoma School Security Institute included developing curriculum and providing free instruction to education institutions and to law enforcement professionals across the state as a way of making schools safer for students, faculty and staff in the wake of the Sandy Hook tragedy.

Rudick continues to author articles on policing through Aha Process, Inc., encouraging emergency responders to develop communication strategies based on economic class. His latest contribution was published in the book Tactical Communication by Jodi Pfarr, a book he uses in speaking to emergency responders across the nation.

Rudick graduated from the FBI National Academy Session 242.

This free event is open to the public. Masks and social distancing are encouraged.
