Tests Await New Paducah Police Chief
Paducah, KY – Paducah's new police chief is already being put to the test. Chief James Berry's first few days on the job will include a physical, drug test, psychological exam, and polygraph test.
Human Resources Director Jonathan Perkins says Berry's tests are the same faced by any other police officer. Perkins says it's good for Berry to have a personal knowledge of what his future hires have to go through.
Berry brings more than 30 years' experience to the Paducah Police Department.
