Today, we reflect and remember the life of Deputy Dwight Lynn Hall. On April 11th, 1979 Deputy Hall responded to a call of a suspicious person. The suspect was at a county park on Fort Myers Beach after hours. While being questioned by Deputy Hall, the suspect began to run. Deputy Hall tackled the suspect to the ground, but while involved in the struggle, the suspect removed Deputy Hall’s gun and fatally shot him. Deputy Hall served with the Lee County Sheriff’s Office for two years. He was an asset to our west district, often patrolling Fort Myers beach. It was his mission to keep the residents of Lee County safe, even on his final shift. This morning, members of the Lee County Sheriff’s Office visited the Florida Sheriff’s Association Fallen Officer Memorial in Tallahassee to place a wreath in remembrance of Deputy Dwight Lynn Hall. Thank you for your service, Deputy Hall. We will never forget your dedication to our community. ... See MoreSee Less
