On Friday, January 6, 2023, at approximately 4:00 P.M. Prescott Police Detective Dillenbeck was involved in a minor, non-injury two vehicle collision at the intersection of State Route 89 and Prescott Lakes Parkway. Initial responding officers on scene made an observation of possible impairment with Detective Dillenbeck and requested a supervisor respond to the scene. As a result of the on-scene investigators observations, it was determined to have Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office respond to investigate the collision as well as the possibility of impaired driving.
As a result of the investigation, Detective Dillenbeck was arrested on scene and eventually cited and released for several counts of impaired driving. It should be noted that Detective Dillenbeck was driving an unmarked police vehicle at the time of the collision.

I am grateful for the service of our partners, the Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office who readily handled the investigation per my request as an independent and outside entity. We are committed to transparency and will always strive to maintain the trust of our community.”
