A Henderson police officer has taken a new assignment, voluntarily switching roles after releasing a dog that attacked a little girl.
A video has surfaced from a January 2015 incident. The dash cam footage is just now being released by Henderson police.
The officer on scene released his K-9 towards a car police were looking at in connection with a robbery.
The girl's father had already been detained by officers, who quickly realized he was not the suspect.
10 seconds later he sprints to the car, after realizing the young girl was inside.

The girl suffered 9 small puncture wounds from the bite.
