SHEPHERDSVILLE - The city of Shepherdsville unexpectedly lost a member of its police department over the weekend.
According to Cpt. Ken Bernardi, K-9 Lt. Jordy died over the weekend at home.
Jordy joined the Shepherdsville Police Department in 2006 and worked with various handlers — Jeff Schank, Mark Riley and Jason Rives.
Anytime an officer is hurt or dies, Bernardi said the rest of the department takes it very hard.
“In my 25 years as an officer, I’ve never seen a drug dog work so hard,” said Bernardi.
