Dick Tracy Wiki

Officer Sands was the attending officer for the holding cells at police headquarters in Dick Tracy's city. He was a heavyset man with light hair.

When the child known as Peanutbutter was given a part-time job as a cleaner in the police station, he took it upon himself to clean the holding area. This surprised Sands, who thought it was an inappropriate place for a child.

Later, Sands was grabbed through the bars of a cell by one of the prisoners being held there. The prisoner choked Sands until Peanutbutter sprayed the assailant in the face with a caustic cleaning product. The prisoner released Sands, who was grateful to Peanutbutter.

Peanutbutter was later reassigned to a different area of police headquarters.
