Deputy Sandeep Singh Dhaliwal was killed in the line of duty in Harris County Texas on Friday September 27th. Deputy Dhaliwal was fatally shot in the head from behind while conducting a routine traffic stop in the area he patrolled. He was a well known deputy in the Houston community, and a respected humanitarian providing aid whenever and wherever he could. Deputy Dhaliwal woke up that morning, put on his uniform like every other day, proudly pinned a badge to his turban and unknowingly said goodbye to his wife and 3 young children for the last time.
He was a man dedicated to his Sikh faith and his community. He will be remembered not only for his work as a police officer but also his impact being one of the first turban wearing police officers in the country, paving the way for many others after him. In 2015, Dhaliwal pushed for a policy that allowed Sikh officers to be able to maintain the articles of their faith by wearing a turban and having a beard on duty. This was a monumental moment for Sikhs in law enforcement throughout the country and motivated others to join the law enforcement community. Deputy Dhaliwal was not only a role model in the Sikh community, he made a positive impact on everyone he came into contact with. Whether it was organizing resources for people affected by Hurricane Harvey or building a bridge between the police and public in his local community. Dhaliwal was a man that was admired and respected by all.
