Governor Charlie Baker was in Yarmouth Tuesday for a ceremonial signing of Nero’s law.
The day was symbolic: the four year anniversary of when Yarmouth Police Sgt. Sean Gannon was killed, and his K-9 partner Nero – the bills namesake – was shot and seriously injured.
Also at the ceremony were Gannon’s parents. His mother Denise spoke of her son’s memory, and letters from the community about experiences with her son.
The governor officially signed the bill into law in February.
