K9 officer appears in Arkansas high school yearbook

She’s featured in the yearbook, but don’t bet on her signing it.

An Arkansas school resource officer named K9 Mya appeared in the staff section of this year’s Bryant High School yearbook. The Belgian Malinois is photographed smiling proudly along with other faculty and teachers.

The Bryant Police Department was practically beaming with pride over the canine cop’s inclusion.

“So it looks like one of Bryant PD’s finest School Resource Officer’s made the Hornet Yearbook this year,” the police department posted on social media. “Good job Mya, you are representing the PD with pride…..Hornet Pride!!!”

Mya has been stationed with the Bryant School District since last year with handler Sgt. Paul Tarvin.

“Mya is a 2 year old Belgian Malinois,” police said last August in announcing her assignment. “She is primarily a narcotics K9 but is also trained for tracking and article recovery. Her assigned duties will be mostly in the High School and school functions.”
