#Bridgeport CT– On Sunday, July 9th around 9pm Bridgeport Police Department were dispatched to a family home on Catherine Street when a mother of a 9-year-old special needs boy realized her son had walked out the back door and she could not locate him. At 9:24pm Zeus and Officer Ryan Mullenax began the track using an article of clothing provided by the mother. The track went from Catherine Street down Harral Avenue into Nanny Goat Park then back along George Street where the child was located.
Police Chief Armando Perez said “This child would not have been found if not for the efforts of K-9 Officer Mullenax and K9 Zeus. This is an example of the great work that our officers do on a daily basis. Incidents like this one often go unnoticed but they are an integral part of all we do to serve our community”.
There are five K9 units in the city of Bridgeport.
