New Jacksonville officer gets surprise four-legged passenger

- Jacksonville police officer Larry Taylor had just joined the force and just got his own cruiser when he got an unexpected passenger.

The new officer was on a call when a dog ran and jumped right into his car when the door was open and proceeded to make herself at home in the passenger seat.

A photo of the surprised officer shows him laughing at the situation. He did let her spend some time there while he wrote up a police report.

Then the pup's owner was located and came to take the four-legged "officer in training" home. 


Meet Officer Larry Taylor! He JUST got his very own police car, he is a brand new police officer with the Jacksonville...
