Officer Perry is a credit to our Police Department and to our community. Thank you Officer Perry for your dedication and your creative thinking of how to inform the older folks of how to protect themselves from possible crimes. I can see Officer Perry working her way up to Chief someday. Grass Valley has the most dedicated Police Force because of Chief Foster and the people he hires. I thank all of you at GVPD for your service.
