Police Officer John F. Andrews
On this day in Baltimore Police History 1957 we lost our brother Police Officer John F. Andrews to an auto accident based on the following:
On October 9, 1957 at approximately 9:50 a.m., Officer Andrews was pursuing a speeder in the 900 block of S. Monroe. Officer Andrews was on a motorcycle with all of his emergency equipment on traveling at approximately 70 to 75 miles per hour. As the officer was overtaking the speeder, the driver swerved in front of Officer Andrews, causing his motorcycle to jump the sidewalk and hit a cement wall. He was killed immediately. Officer Andrews served in the U.S. Navy from March 9, 1943 to February 5, 1946. He saw three years of combat in the Pacific.
As his brothers and sisters of the Baltimore Police Department we will not let him be forgotten, His service Honored the City of Baltimore, and the Baltimore Police Department may he rest in peace, and may God bless him.
