The New Haven Police Department in Missouri welcomed a new officer this week and you could say he’s man’s best friend!

Two-year-old pitbull mix “Jet” was rescued from an animal shelter now he’s joined the police force. According to Jet’s handler, Officer Kyle Walters, an organization called Animal Farm Foundation chose Jet because of his loving temperament and willingness to work.

According to ABC4 the foundation even paid for Jet’s training. Walters says the K9 will serve New Haven and nearby communities by sniffing out illegal drugs.

Jet is also an ambassador for the New Haven Police Department. He’ll make public appearances at schools and other events.
