The Gumshoe – Retires

GUMSHOE-DANNY-PITOCCO[su_dropcap style=”flat”]H[/su_dropcap]E’S SPENT A TOTAL of 44 years in law enforcement, the last 16 of which were carried out with the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Department. Prior to his official retirement on Monday, Nov. 17, he had been working for Chief Monte Beaton as East Snohomish County’s lead detective.

What will he miss the most after over 40 years of working in law enforcement? According to Danny “Gumshoe” Pitocco it’s the amazing camaraderie that he has been able to develop with his brothers and sisters in law enforcement.

“I’ve been blessed and have nothing but gratitude because most guys and gals that join police work are lucky to make it to 20,” said Pitocco. “I don’t miss the job but I’m always going to miss the people. I think that’s the biggest thing, I really do.

Andn of course, there’s the part about catching bad guys.

“Nothing was ever more satisfying in police work then to call up the parent of a victim or the victim themself and say, ‘I got the son-of-a-*****,” said Pitocco.

Since graduating from the police academy in 1971, Pitocco has worked in practically every aspect of law enforcement. He’s been a K9 handler; undercover narcotics officer; detective; special agent for the DEA; academy instructor; state police officer; city police officer and field training officer.
