Boy returns to school after dad's death, 70 cops escort him

WGNTV reports that Pitt's son, Dakota, returned back to school Monday in touching fashion.

Touching video shows the officers lining the side walk in support of Dakota while he donned his father's badge and was given a SWAT shirt as he made his way to the door of Sullivan Elementary School.

Upon his arrival, Dakota discovered 70 Terre Haute police officers and Vigo County sheriff's deputies waiting to welcome him to school.

The officers weren't just from Terre Haute, where Dakota's dad Rob Pitts was an officer.

Several of the officers came forward and presented Dakota with small tokens such as a T-shirt and a police patch. "He will definitely know his dad was a hero", Kelli Jones, Dakota's aunt, said.

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

Pitts also leaves behind another son and daughter.
