A new member of the Lafayette Police Department was introduced today.
Barry, a 4-year-old Belgian Malawa, will be starting his service immediately.
The K9 was an unexpected donation to the police department by K9 concepts.
The owner of the company Jack Robicheaux says he wanted to give back to the community and giving Barry to LPD was the perfect way.
The companies donation gives the department extra resources on the streets and saves them almost $13,000.
