Retired Police K9 “Andy” Passes Away

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.
