The Wichita Police Department is welcoming a new patrol dog who traveled thousands of miles to help keep city street safe.

The department said on social media Thursday that Oz is a 16-month-old Belgian Malinois from Hungary. The K9 and his handler, Sgt. Jonker recently completed an 11-week training course. 

"They will be helpful in keeping Wichita safe," a WPD Facebook post says.
