Dakota Pitts recently lost his father, Terre Haute Officer Rob Pitts, in the line of duty.

On his first day back to school, the 5-year-old did not want to show up alone. He asked his mom if he could have an escort, but he didn't expect so many to appear.

More than 50 Terre Haute officers and some family members appeared without any hesitation, WNDU reports.
