The Prince George’s County Police Department’s Special Operations Division regrets to inform you of the passing of retired police K9, Andy. Andy was the faithful partner of A/Sgt Robert Heverly. Andy served as a patrol and drug detection K9 from January 2001 until December 2011.
During his 10-year career with the PGPD, K9 Andy located several suspects, missing persons, evidence and drugs. In 2002, Andy was awarded an American Red Cross “Real Hero – Medal of Courage” for helping catch an armed carjacking suspect. That arrest led to the closure of a homicide and an armed robbery.
The 14-year-old Belgian Malinois was a cherished partner and member of both the PGPD and Heverly family. “Andy was a great and loyal dog and will be truly missed,” said A/Sgt Heverly.
