The University of Pittsburgh Police Department family lost one of its most beloved members last evening – retired K9 Officer Riggs. Riggs was peacefully laid to rest with his partner, Sgt. Dave Nanz and his wife, by his side.
Officer Riggs retired from the department in 2016. Before that, Officer Riggs spent close to 10 years keeping the University Community safe. His work was on full display as he worked countless hours during a series of bomb threats in 2012.
RIP Riggs – Thank you for your service!
