We met Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department Sergeant Doug Shive who rode in this years Police Unity Tour in honor of our fallen Officer Rob Pitts at the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial today. He is from Illinois and when he heard what happened to Rob he chose to ride in his honor this year and will again next year when Rob is added to these walls. We can’t thank Doug enough for doing this for Rob and his family! If you look close in the picture you will see I am wearing bib #196 from one of the runners in today’s National Police Week 5K. When we were at the memorial earlier this morning she walked past us and I immediately saw #196. I stopped her, explained that it was Rob’s number and asked to take a picture of it. She graciously gave me the bib which I will give to Rob’s family when I return home after we honor this years hero’s and survivors. This was Rob’s way of saying he knew we were here....rest In peace brother.
We will be hosting our annual Fallen Officer Ceremony today at 4 pm. The ceremony will take place in the parking lot of our headquarters.
Memorial contributions can be made at any Fifth-Third Bank location to the “Officer Rob Pitts Memorial Fund”. Thank you.
Words cannot express how grateful the Pitts family is for your support. The support from businesses, prayer vigils, social media messages and etc. They thank you from the bottom of their hearts and find comfort in all of you. Their hearts are broken, but they know they’re blessed. Please continue to pray for our entire community.
Everyone has shown an overwhelming amount of support for which we are grateful. Please hug your loved ones as you never know when your time is up. It is impossible for us to respond to every single message, but we thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Please continue to pray for our community.

Officer Rob Pitts #196

We are sad to report that Patrolman Rob Pitts #196 was the Officer killed in yesterday’s incident. Officer Pitts was a 16 year veteran of the Terre Haute Police Department. Rob is deeply missed, but we are grateful for the time we had with him. Thank you for your continued prayers.
Several churches have planned a prayer vigil for this evening at 6p. The event will be held at the Vigo County Courthouse.
Our hearts are broken and our emotions are drained. However, know that through thick and thin we WILL continue to police our streets and make our community as safe as we can. We grieve, but stand ready to battle evil and understand that life is precious and shouldn’t be taken for granted. We are inundated with kind/loving messages and for that we are thankful. Please keep the Wabash Valley in your prayers.
We sincerely appreciate all of the kind messages. We are deeply saddened by the loss of our officer, and ask that you keep our entire community in your prayers.
