CLEBURNE COUNTY, AR (KAIT) -

Cleburne County authorities are working to provide some "Justice" with its newest officer, according to a post on the Cleburne County Sheriff's Office's Facebook page.

"Justice" is a two and a half-year-old Dutch Shepherd dog that can work on narcotics detection, evidence recovery, and tracking a person, Cleburne County Sheriff Chris Brown said. 

The department has raised about $4,300 of the nearly $14,000 price for the dog and is asking people to help with donations.

Anyone wanting to help can contact Brown or Deputy Jeff McLain at (501) 362-8143.
