Community coming to aid of hospitalized HVPD sergeant

Highland Village Police Sgt. Dennis Oliver

UPDATE 10/2/20: Sgt. Dennis Oliver has passed away. Statement from HVPD: “It is with heavy hearts we share this news. Sgt. Dennis Oliver passed away this morning. His wife and their two sons were with him. Please continue to pray for his family. We will provide more information on funeral arrangements as we receive them.”

ORIGINAL STORY: An online fundraiser has been set up for a Highland Village Police sergeant who was recently hospitalized, and the community is helping out with meals and donations.

Sgt. Dennis Oliver was hospitalized last week with pneumonia, and while in the hospital, he suffered a stroke and is intubated due to those complications, according to the Highland Village Police Department. Oliver has been with the HVPD since 2003, and the department has organized the GoFundMe to assist his family.

“If you’ve ever met him, you will never forget him!” said Highland Village Police Chief Doug Reim on the GoFundMe page. “His smile, his kindness, his desire to always go to the extra effort to serve! For starters–I know that PRAYERS will be greatly appreciated by Toni and the family! Thank you for your support!”
