K9 Pito retires from the Vernon Police Department

He has tracked down numerous criminal suspects, been responsible for the arrest of hundreds of drug dealers and users, seized hundreds of pounds of narcotics, and has found several missing children and adults. A distinguished career that any officer would love to have. His name? K9 Pito.

Since 2009, K9 Pito has been patrolling the streets of Vernon with his handler, Officer Dan Macaulay. The two were paired together and were every bit the crime fighting duo that Batman and Robin were.

As is the case with all of us in law enforcement, we want to go out on top and that is exactly what Pito has done. Today, K9 Pito is officially retired.

Pito's entire family here at the Vernon Police Department wishes him well in his retirement life. We would also like to thank OFC Macaulay for all his hard work, dedication, time spent working with K9 Pito and making Pito the K9 officer he was and will always be.

OFC Macaulay and K9 Pito are truly a credit to the Vernon Police Department. Thank you both for your dedicated service.
