CONTACT INFORMATION:   Chief Chris Atack, 919-918-7407     

 

INFORMATION:   In accordance with North Carolina General Statute, 160A-266 declares K-9 Turbo to be surplus property upon retirement from service and authorizes her assigned handler, POIII Karissa Kimrey, to take ownership of K-9 Turbo upon her execution of a hold harmless agreement to provide proper care for the remainder of the dog’s life. By executing that agreement, POIII Kimrey will assume all liability and responsibility for the dog. The Council has previously awarded a retiring Police K9 to the handler free of charge. Town staff recommends that the Town Council award K9 Turbo to POIII Kimrey at no cost.   

 

FISCAL & STAFF IMPACT:    K9 Turbo has no financial value to the Town.      

 

RECOMMENDATION:    Staff recommends that the Town Council adopt the attached resolution.
