Northamptonshire Police will have an extra four legs — and 42 teeth — chasing the county's villains around the county streets next week.
Rookie PD Koda is joining the force's dogs section fresh out of training school.
And Chief Constable Nick Adderley was the first to welcome his newest recruit.
Mr Adderley tweeted: "Yet another colleague joins the rank and file of the great Northants Police team. Congratulations PD Koda - to your duties, commence."
Koda — with handler PC Marta Murray — follows hot on the paws of PD Ebby, who joined the force last month and quickly nabbed her first arrest .. traaking down a suspect attempting to steal from a building site.
The dog section has its own Twitter account which regularly updates followers on the achievements of the county's canine force.
