Our community was devastated with the passing of K-9 police Officer Rocco, who died tragically from injuries suffered in the line of duty.
In true Pittsburgh fashion, our community rallied to lend support to our fallen hero, his partner, his family, his fellow officers and each other at such a sorrowful time. Your thoughts, prayers, condolences and donations were heartfelt and poured in from Pittsburghers spread all over our great nation.
Rocco was a working dog. His job was to protect his fellow officers and our community. He wore his badge with honor and dignity and gave of himself for the safety of others. He performed his duties unconditionally, without question, and as every pet owner knows, he always made a bad day good and a good day better for all of us. He is a true hero. Thank you, Rocco! Thank you, Pittsburgh!
