The Perryville Police Department K-9 program consists of one K-9. His name is Punter and his handler is Officer Chris Bradford. Punter is a German Sheperd and became a member of the Police Department in 2013. He is trained to locate suspects of crimes, lost persons, evidence recovery and narcotic detection. The unit frequently trains at a vigorous and professional level and is conducted on a variety of situations to help ensure that we are prepared for any encounter. The K-9 unit is a valuable resource for our department.
