Those flipping through the Bryant High School yearbook may be surprised to see a furry face pictured among the faculty, staff and students: It’s Mya, the K-9 school resource officer.
The Belgian Malinois started working as a resource officer at the Bryant, Arkansas, high school in August 2018, MySaline.com reported.
In her yearbook photo, Mya looks happy -- her ears are perked up and her tongue is out. She’s included in the staff section, WFMY-TV reported.
The Bryant Police Department posted her photo to its Facebook page on Thursday.
"So it looks like one of Bryant PD's finest School Resource Officer's made the Hornet Yearbook this year," the post said. "Good job Mya, you are representing the PD with pride.....Hornet Pride!!!"
Mya is trained to primarily sniff out drugs, but she also has tracking and article recovery abilities, according to MySaline.com.
