CONCORD, N.H. (AP) A 4-month yellow Labrador puppy is getting ready to soothe crime victims as a comfort dog.

WMUR-TV reports that Liberty the dog is believed to the state's first comfort dog for a police department.

New Hampshire-based nonprofit Hero Pups is training Liberty, who will also accompany Concord officers sat community events. The nonprofit typically trains service dogs for first responders and veterans.

Department chief Bradley Osgood said he doesn't expect the dog to cost the city.
