Bring Your Dog to Work Day a paw-fect excuse for a visit

Posted: 5pm 24 Jun 2022

Police across the Moreton District have shown off their finest four-legged friends to celebrate Take Your Dog to Work Day today.

Moreton Community Engagement Officer Senior-Constable Jo Arthur took the opportunity to take one her my four-legged friends to Burpengary Station today – Indi the Rhodesian ridgeback.

“Indi is friendly and likes to socialise so she fits right in at the station,” Sen-Constable Arthur says.

“I showed her around and she got to mingle with a few of my work colleagues.”

Sen-Constable Arthur has worked around Moreton for the past 13 years and has been a police officer for 31 years.

She’s the author of many of the articles on the mypolice Moreton Blog and Facebook page.

“The great thing about policing is that if you want to try different roles throughout your service, you can, and I have,” she says.

“If you’ve been interested in a career as a police officer, there’s never been a better time to join.”

Sen-Constable Arthur says as much as police would love to have a regular station dog visit all the time, it is not really practical – and they do have the police dogs.

“Animals are a great comfort at times and a way to destress, but we have to rely on short visits from time to time from some of the officers’ dogs or a local pup at a community engagement event.”

Harvey takes over Caboolture Station

“Harvey belongs to one of our admin staff, Danielle, who works at Caboolture,” Sen-Constable Arthur says.

“Harvey has been known to visit and has been as far as HQ to visit officers - he is a bit of a star and pretty darn cute.

“We feel pretty lucky to work and play alongside these furry friends – they liven up the mood whenever they visit and are wonderful stress relief in an often difficult job.”
