Officer Hank Nava’s Patrol Unit Receives Permanent Home On December 1, 2005, Officer Hank Nava died from a gunshot wound he suffered two days earlier while serving an arrest warrant. During the funeral procession, Officer Nava’s Patrol Captain ordered Nava’s patrol car to be parked at the corner of Ellis Avenue and N. 25th Street. During this time, multiple people used a marker to write messages of thanks and sympathy on the patrol car. In 2007, the decision was made to loan the vehicle to the American Police Hall of Fame and Museum in Titusville, Florida. Almost 12 years later in August 2019, Nava’s patrol car returned to Fort Worth, and is permanently on display in the lobby of the Bob Bolen Public Safety Complex.
