The Killeen ISD Police Department is proud to introduce the newest member of the department, K9 Geri, to the public on Thursday morning.
Geri is a 2-year-old Belgian Malinois and is dual trained in weapons detection and apprehension. He and his handler, Officer Kyle Perrow, have undergone extensive training to learn how to work together as a team and to detect over 15 different kinds of weapons, explosives, and firearms. The duo has been together for nearly four months and will continue their training together.
K9 Geri will regularly visit campuses to educate and demonstrate his abilities to the students, as well as provide patrol support for athletic and special district events. The team will also attend large events that involve KISD students for safety and detection purposes.
Geri is the second K9 in the KISD Police Department, K9 Sauron joined the force in the spring of 2020.
