STATEMENT FROM MAYOR WILLIAM PEDUTO ABOUT PASSING OF K9 OFFICER

I am saddened to learn about the passing of K9 Officer Rocco. He served this city faithfully and paid the ultimate price in the line of duty in service of the residents of our City. His brave actions very possibly spared the lives of two other officers. My thoughts and prayers are with his fellow officers and the entire Pittsburgh Police Bureau.
