Algimantas Mykolas Dailidė (born 12 March 1921) is a former Lithuanian Security Police (Saugumas) official. He was born in Kaunas.[1] After the war Dailidė sought refuge in the United States, saying he had been a "forester." While in the United States Dailidė was a real estate agent until he retired to Gulfport, Florida. His citizenship was revoked in 1997 and he left the United States on his own in 2004.

A Lithuanian court convicted him of having arrested some Jews who tried to flee from the Vilna Ghetto and for arresting two Polish nationals who subsequently became political prisoners; however he was not sentenced to prison "because he is very old and does not pose danger to society".[2]
