MESA, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) -

The Mesa Police Department has a new detective.

Meet Macy, who got a very warm welcome as she was introduced Tuesday morning. 

The 15-week-old English Labrador retriever is the first furry member of the Department's new Therapy Canine Program. 

The program is based out of the Department's Mesa Family Advocacy Center.

As Macy grows and receives her training, she will provide comfort and compassion to both victims of crime and staff members.

She has been shown to provide comfort and companionship to those in need of a friendly presence. Or just those who could use a little "puppy love."

Mesa police say the Therapy Canine Program will be an excellent opportunity to assist victims and staff during their most difficult times.
