Deputy Clifford Dicker was shot and killed by a juvenile suspect he was serving papers on.

As Deputy Dicker entered the residence the 15-year-old suspect shot him in the face with a .22 caliber rifle, wounding him. The suspect then took Deputy Dicker's service weapon and shot him in the head a second time, killing him.

The suspect, a 15 year old male, was arrested a short time later, and tried as an adult. He pled No Contest, and was sentenced to 42 years in prison.

Deputy Dicker had served with the agency for 14 years and had previously served with the United States Air Force. He is survived by his wife, two sons, daughter, two step-daughters and two grandchildren.

When a police officer falls in the line of duty, a part of every officer dies with him or her. I am a corrections officer and it pains me that someone can take the life of a person sworn to protect them. My heart grieves for every fallen officer all across this great nation. Deputy Cliffard Dicker, I never knew you personally, but you were, and will always be my brother. R.I.P
