Sarasota Police K9 Bandi Passed away
It is with great sadness we share news of the passing of one of our beloved police canines. K9 Bandi unexpectedly passed away Thursday, March 24, 2022, while on-duty.
K9 Bandi was a German Shepard born in Hungary in 2014 and has been with the Sarasota Police Department since 2016. Bandi and his handler, Sergeant Jonathan Misiewicz, have been partnered together since 2016. Bandi was certified in Explosive Odor Detection, Tracking, Article Search, and Apprehension.
While the cause of death has not yet been officially determined, veterinarians believe that Bandi passed away from natural causes. Bandi was an exceptional police dog and faithful partner to Sgt. Misiewicz. Please join us in keeping the Misiewicz family in your thoughts.
