I was first introduced to Matt Dillon when I was transferred to the DA felony Superior Court trials division. He was SDPD’s check fraud/paper case detective. I respected him from the get go for his meticulousness and belief that these cases needed the same attention as all of the other types of cases. Stealing from someone personally or indirectly from their savings or from the merchants is equally harmful and deplorable.

To Matt and to his family, I offer my thanks for his good service to our criminal justice system. RIP.

To the Dillon Family - my name is Kathleen Healey, and I am a retiree from San Diego Police Department. I knew Gene as "Matt" Dillon, and he was a legend in the Forgery Unit. I am so sorry to learn of his passing and wish to extend my deepest condolences. I am also a member of the Retired Fire & Police Association. Our group has a number for PD retiree volunteers who assist the families of retirees when someone from the PD passes. The group is called Hand in Hand. If there's anything you need, i.e. assistance in applying for benefits, assistance with planning memorial services to include an Honor Guard from the PD or the like, please contact me at retiredfp.police@gmail.com. Sending you much love and support from your PD family.
