Peru police officers began classes for certification to carry new AR-15 rifles purchased for the department with funds from drug arrests and seizures.

The officers were practicing and being scored for their accuracy with the rifles.

Peru police chief Doug Bernabei said all officers on the force were given the opportunity to choose an AR-15, and 19 of them requested to be issued one.

They were practicing with the AR-15s for the first time Thursday at the police department’s new shooting range, which also was purchased with funds from drug enforcement.
