Dear Police1 Member,
Twenty-four years ago today, Deputy Kyle Dinkheller made a traffic stop that would prove fatal for the deputy. The shooting of Dinkheller was captured on his patrol car dash cam, becoming a staple of police academy curricula and officer survival training sessions ever since. Kyle was 22 years old when he died and left behind a pregnant wife and a two-year-old daughter.
In 2017, former Atlanta police officer and filmmaker Patrick Shaver set out to produce a more comprehensive record of Dinkheller’s murder and the circumstances surrounding it. Learn more here.
