Former Chief of the Hathian Police Department, Hendrich Andel, announced his retirement from the department after thirty years of service.
Hendrich Andel informed the city of his intent to officially retire effective at the end of the week. Andel is retiring after thirty years of public service as a law enforcement officer, with 10 of those years as Chief of the department.
“It has been a pleasure serving the city of Hathian of all these years. I would have loved to continue my service, but there comes a point when one has to hang up the uniform for good and unfortunately for me, that time is now,” Andel told the Observer. He was asked if he would return like the last time that he temporarily retired from the department.
“I’m afraid that my time in the Hathian Police uniform is done. My return is, at this time, very unlikely,” said the former HPD Chief.
“I like to thank the city of Hathian, my fellow officers and the public I served for making my career in the department an exciting one,” Andel added.
The department intends to honor their former police chief but retiring his shield number, uniform and his baton, the weapon of choice during his long and prestigious career.
“We thank Hendrich Andel for his dedication to the department. Many officers held him with the utmost respect. It is a shame that we have lost one of the best officers in the department but we wish him the best during his well deserved retirement,” the Hathian Police Department said in a brief statement.
When asked what he will do after his retirement, Andel said that he would be enjoying his time. He mentioned of possibly moving to Costa Rica where he went last time, or Aruba. Whatever he decides to do from this point forward, we wish Hendrich Andel a long and healthy retirement.
