Story Summary

“I’ll park the car and walk the square, checking door locks and windows of local businesses, making sure that everything is securely locked, and that windows are closed,” says Officer Unverferth.

Corporal Pete started working as a cop in Perryville eight months ago after almost eight years as an officer in St. Genevieve just north of Perryville.

When Corporal Pete is not keeping the people of his hometown safe, he’s working with his wife, Alicia, to raise their children, Jack and Makenzie, and to get their home ready for the third child.
