A police dog has made it to the photo-page of a school’s yearbook after it was recognized by staff as a reliable patrol officer.
The yearbook staff of Bryant High School felt that Mya Tarvin has been putting in long days at the school for the entire school year, just like all the students and teachers.
That’s apparently why they decided to honour this Arkansas K-9 officer by publishing her photo where other good staff were published.
The photogenic Belgian Malinois breed got a prime spot in the middle of the staff page — right between a math teacher and the school’s yearbook adviser.
To paraphrase comments from the Bryant Police Department, which posted the photo on its Facebook page, good girl!
“So it looks like one of Bryant PD’s finest School Resource Officer’s made the Hornet Yearbook this year. Good job Mya, you are representing the PD with pride…..Hornet Pride!!!” the officers wrote.
Mya has been patrolling the halls with her own school ID badge since the beginning of the year.
Mya joined the Bryant Police Department in August and was assigned to the high school. The department says she is primarily a narcotics dog, but she is also trained to perform tracking and article recovery.
