Off Duty Cop Killed

  • An off-duty Chicago police officer was killed Tuesday in a motorcycle crash in south suburban Matteson.

    "It appears she lost control of the bike and hit a street sign," Matteson Police Deputy Chief George Pfotenhauer said this morning.

    The victim, identified as 40-year-old Andria Randolph, was taken to St. James Hospital in Olympia Fields, where she was pronounced dead, Pfotenhauer said.

My condolences to my friend/co-worker's family. She was a great mother who worked midnights so that she could be home for her children. She truly believed in this department and loved her job as well as her friends and family.
AR you will be missed.

God bless you and your family Andria. You taught me well in the 002nd Dist. She had this thing about not folding your general case reports. I remember going to a job and pulling a folded one out of my vest. When we went to the 002nd Dist. to finish up paper she made me redo the whole report. She told me that you never know when your paper might make it to the supreme court.

Andria was a couple of classes behind me in the police academy. I saw her working out in the gym from time to time. I admit to having a small crush on her but I was shy and never approached her in an intimate way. I haven't seen her in several years but I will remember her as a sweet and beautiful person both inside and out.

Andria, I'm sure that you are reading this from heaven. So let me say to you that the world was a better place for having you in it. I am sure that your police family will make the necessary arrangements to take care of your children and one day we will all be together in heaven. God Bless you, and please watch over us from above.

I remember andria from the academy. She was truly one of the sweetest people you will ever meet.To my fellow officers,let us use this incident as a reminder to never miss a chance to tell the people who matter to you how much you love them and how much you appreciate them. I really believe that when your time on earth is done and after all the fake tears from all the polticians are gone after your passing,you are not going to be remembered for how many arrests you make or how high you get promoted. You will be remembered for the type of father you were to your kids,the type of friend you were and how many lives you touched. So i would like to ask in honor of andria,to call that friend you were always meaning to call. Tell your friends and family how much you love them,and if you are fighting with a friend or a loved one call them,tell them your sorry and make peace. Life is so short and we mistakenly think that we will always have another day so treat the people who matter to you like there is no tomorrow.Let us also use this as a reminder to stop the petty bickering we have with each other and become a family. When tragedy strikes,we put all other stuff aside and we become a family but why do we have to wait when someone is gone before we show them how much we care? God bless andria and her friends and family and lets go back to being a family and a brotherhood because when it is all said and done it is how we treat people when they are alive is what matters. To andria,thank you for making cpd a brighter place and watch out for us in heaven.
