PROVO, Utah — A Prove police K9 officer is retiring after eight years with the department.


Mira, who worked as a bomb detection dog, conducted hundreds of bomb sweeps for marathons, parades, concerts, and sporting events during her service.


According to the department, she responded to numerous schools when they had bomb threats, went on several unattended package calls and helped a hospital quickly open back up its emergency room after a bomb threat.


She even found a stolen block of C4.

Mira will be living with Provo Police Officer Lewis as a pet where she will have fun camping and eating unhealthy!


Great job and happy retirement, Mira!
