    Boynton Beach Police's new therapy dog, Harley.

    Boynton Beach Police say they're the first municipal police department in Florida to employ a therapy dog.

    The department announced Wednesday that Harley, a 3-year-old Beagle mix, has officially joined the force.

    Harley has been partnered with Det. Astrel Labbe, a 14-year veteran who specializes in investigations of crimes against children and the elderly.

    The therapy dog was trained at the Paws & Stripes College at the Brevard County Sheriff's Office and will continue training with Det. Labbe for the next week.
