PITTSBURGH - An outpouring of support for Pittsburgh K-9 officer Rocco, who was stabbed and killed earlier this year, has generated thousands of dollars for the Pittsburgh Police K-9 Unit.
“The Black and Gold Girls” raised more than $47,000 through the sale of “remembering Rocco” T-shirts.
The money will be used to buy 15 additional vests for the department’s K-9 unit. The rest of the money will go into the Officer Rocco Fund.
Rocco was stabbed in late January while assisting with an arrest. He died two days later.
