FULTON COUNTY, Ky. - There's a new officer at the Fulton County Sheriff's Department.

K9 Officer Kwinta joined the team over the weekend.  The five-year-old Belgian Malinois hasn't started working yet.

Sheriff Robert Hopper says she and her handler, Deputy Johnny Smith, will have to be trained together before she can be brought into service.

That training will happen in Paris, Tennessee.
