Wetumka police have a new officer on the force, and she's the first of her kind in the state.

Police on Tuesday announced Officer Wildflower is joining the department. Wildflower is reportedly the first rescue pitbull K9 police dog in Oklahoma.

Wildflower reportedly came to the department from the Throw Away Dogs Project.

According to FOX 29 in Pennsylvania, Wildflower was a stray picked up on the streets of South Carolina before being sent to the 'Throw Away Dogs Project.' That's where Wildflower was given her narcotics detection training.

Officer Wildflower is even set up with her own Facebook page so you can follow her journey with the Wetumka Police Department.
