Fallen officer's son gets police escort to school

Fallen officer's son gets police escort to school

"Our hope is that Dakota's first day back to school after his father's passing is one that he will remember forever and that he will always know how much his father's sacrifice meant to all of us", she added.

Dakota Pitts had told his mother that he didn't want to show up at school alone, according to CBS.

Pitts was killed in shootout with a suspect.

Footage shows Dakota wearing his dad's badge around his neck as police line the street for the five-year-old as he returned to school.

Rob Pitts was one of four officers who were fired on as they approached an apartment building on May 4.

For his first day back to school, Dakota asked if one of his dad's friends could drive him in his dad's police auto. Then an officer presented the young LAD with his own SWAT shirt as he made his way to the door of Sullivan Elementary School.

Trial on tap in Giants, Eli Manning memorabilia lawsuit
Manning and the Giants had denied the allegations and characterized the suit as "inflammatory and baseless" in court filings. The email was meant to ask Skiba for two helmets that would "satisfy the requirement for being game used", the filing said.

When he arrived at his school in Sullivan he was greeted by 70 Terre Haute police officers and Vigo County sheriff's deputies.

"He will definitely know his dad was a hero", Officer Pitts' sister Kelli Jones told WTHI-TV.

The 16-year police vet was fatally shot by a 21-year-old suspect while responding to a call last week.

"Blood doesn't always make family and I think the blue family went above and beyond".

Rob, a 16-year veteran of the force, left behind a wife and his 5-year-old son, Dakota.

"It's a brotherhood", said Detective Les Hamm.
