Patrolman William Dalton was pursuing a violator of the panhandling ordinance on horseback.

The horse ran into a buggy at the intersection of Germantown Street and Baxter Street (modern day Fitch Street), throwing Patrolman Dalton to the ground and causing a fractured skull from which he died the next day.

Patrolman Dalton had served with the Dayton Police Department for three years. He was survived by his wife and daughter.

I just found out that this hero was a constable on my department around 1895 before joining Dayton PD. I have a picture of PTL. Dalton on my memorial wall. Thank you for your noble service! God bless DPD and every Police Officer.
