PTC’s Junior Police cadets watch a K-9 takedown

It may have been a view at a distance from behind a fence, but participants in the Junior Police Academy offered by the Peachtree City Police Department saw a live demonstration of the department’s K-9 team Wednesday. A police officer donned a “bite suit” to show how the canine can subdue a suspect in a foot chase. The program is designed to provide a detailed insight into various department operations which also serves to strengthen the department’s bond with the community. Photo/Special.
