Peru Police Drug Dogs Out Of Commission

Posted by wlpo on August 14, 2013

In times of need, it’s nice to know you can reach out to a neighbor for help.  This is what’s happening with Peru and La Salle Police Departments.

The Peru PD currently has both of its drug dogs out of commission and is turning to La Salle for help when needed.  Peru needs to replace not only Kali who died in a car accident but they’re also dealing with the other K-9 officer Matt Heiden having brain surgery.  Peru Police Chief Doug Bernabei says it’ll be a few months before Kali is replaced and even longer before Officer Heiden is back at work.

Kali’s handler by the way, Art Smith is back working with the police department.
