Morris County Sheriff's Officer Detective Marc Adamsky stopped into Mount Arlington Police Department on March 25, on official business, but made sure he had time for a special visit.

In fitting tribute Detective Adamsky brought JoJo, his K-9 pup in training, to visit a memorial established for JoJo's namesake, deceased Mount Arlington Police Officer Joseph Wargo.

A Belgian Malinois canine, JoJo was named in honor of Officer Wargo, who was struck in his patrol vehicle on Route 80 in Roxbury Township in 2011 by a driver who admittedly was impaired by drugs. The much-loved, affable Officer Wargo died despite efforts by Officers and EMTs to save him.

JoJo is being trained in accelerant detection and search and rescue and is destined to make Officer Wargo proud.

Officer Wargo was struck in his patrol vehicle on Route 80 in Roxbury Township in 2011 by a driver who admittedly was impaired on drugs. Despite efforts by police and emergency medical technicians to save him, Officer Wargo died. The driver pleaded guilty to aggravated manslaughter and in 2013 was sentenced to 20 years in state prison.
