NEWAYGO, Mich. — The Newaygo Police Department is adding a new member to the force, and she is traveled all the way from France to be a part of the team.

Bella, Newaygo Police Department’s new K9 officer, is a Belgian Malinois, otherwise known as a Belgian shepherd.

The department was able to purchase Bella thanks to a donor, the department said in a Facebook Post.

“Bella is a priceless gift given to our city by a extremely generous donor,” the department’s post said,  “a gift reported by two internationally known trainers to be a once in a lifetime opportunity. A gift to our community that will last for several years. She will impact our community in many ways by providing safety to our officers and our community. She will be a visible presence in our schools to protect our children.”

Now that Bella is in the United States, she will continue her training until April.
