The son of a Terre Haute police officer killed in the line of duty was given a special trip to school Monday. 5-year-old Dakota Pitts returned to school in Sullivan for the first time since his father, Rob Pitts, was killed more than a week ago.

Dakota wore his father’s badge around his neck and over 70 officers welcomed Dakota back to school.

The SWAT Team also gave Dakota his own SWAT shirt and badge.
