Rohovit retiring from police department today after 26 years of service

Lieutenant was one of first school resource officers

Pleasanton Police Lieutenant Scott Rohovit will retire Friday after 26 years of service.

He began his career with Pleasanton police in 1990 after serving four years in the U.S. Navy.

He has held a variety of assignments, including as the department's DARE officer, a K-9 handler and as one of the city's first School Resource Officers.

"In each of these highly public assignments, Scott was well known for his outgoing and friendly demeanor with the public and for his incredible dedication to the department and community," said City Manager Nelson Fialho.

Rohovit was promoted to sergeant in 2008 and to lieutenant in 2010, where he served as a Watch Commander and the department's Special Operations Lieutenant.

Congratulations to Scott Rohovit! A well-deserved retirement. Thank you for your service on the street and in the classroom. I was teaching 5th graders in 1999, and appreciated your work with my students and the DARE program. I was also blown away to realize that I was a student of your father's (Roosevelt Jr. High, Cedar Rapids, IA, circa 1964.) Small world!
Best wishes for years of rest and relaxation!

I liked Lieutenant Scott Rohovit, he was a good police officer, I will miss not having him in the Pleasanton police department.
