Dhaliwal was gunned down in September 2019 during a routine traffic stop in the Cypress area. He was the first Sikh American in Texas to receive a policy accommodation to serve while wearing his articles of faith, including his turban and beard.

“I am very grateful to Congresswoman Lizzie Fletcher and her commitment to honouring my husband’s memory,” according to a statement from Harwinder Kaur Dhaliwal, the deputy’s wife.
