Officer Dennis Pedigo returns to work at CPD

Posted: Updated:

Chattanooga Police Master Patrol Officer Dennis Pedigo returned to work on Monday.

Pedigo spent almost a year on leave after being shot in the ankle during a shooting spree at a military base in July of 2015. 

Pedigo has undergone surgery and spent time on leave, to heal.

"Officer Pedigo is a true hero and it is so good to see him back in the station," said Chief of Police Fred Fletcher.  "He still has a long road ahead to full recovery, but he is strong and he is a fighter and we all have his back." 

Officials say Pedigo's current work status is "light duty",  and will remain that way until he is cleared to return to full duty.
