Dano, the police dog who inspired Dano's Law, passed away on December 11th. Dano and Captain Tim Pino paid a visit to the Jim Gearhart Show last January. We extend our deepest sympathies to Captain Tim Pino and his law enforcement family.

Governor Christie has recently signed Dano's Law that would punish anyone who attempts to harm a law enforcement animal. The idea for this law came into existence after Dano's life was threatened by a criminal.

Check out the photos from Captain Pino and Dano's visit to our station.



Watch the video below to learn more about Dano's Law and Captain Pino's amazing efforts to make Dano's Law a national law.

We thank Captain Pino and Dano for stopping in and informing us about law enforcement animals, and Dano's Law.
