Representative Crocker’s Statement on the Death of K-9 Officer Sean Gannon

BOSTON - I am devastated by the loss of Yarmouth Police Dept. K-9 Officer Sean Gannon. His tragic passing in the line of duty highlights the incredible dangers that our men and women in blue face each day that they put on their uniforms and keep us safe. For them, and for all of us, what they do is more than just a job, and Sean Gannon’s devotion to his vocation will not be forgotten. During a time of tragedy such as this, we come together as a community, to be there for one another. We, as a community, stand strong. We are a symbol of all that Officer Gannon stood to protect, and a testament to him and all of our police officers’ selfless bravery and sacrifice that they greet each day with when they report for duty.

The already amazing show of support from our first responders, our community, and the entire Cape, have been, and continue to be, a beacon in the darkness of a tragedy. On behalf of the constituents that I represent from the Second Barnstable District and myself, we send our deepest prayers and sympathies to Officer Gannon's family and the entire Yarmouth Police Department. I have and will continue to file legislation to protect our first responders because they protect us.
