AGENDA MEMORANDUM

 

Meeting Date:           November 24, 2008

 

From:                          Chief William Chrisman

 

Subject:                      Resolution authorizing sale of Police K9 "Eddy" to the City of Eustis

 

 

Staff Recommendation:

Staff recommends approval of the sale of K9 “Eddy” to the Eustis Police Department for $6,000.00.

 

Analysis:

The successful application of a K9’s training lies within the bond that is formed between the K9 and the handler. K9 “Eddy’s” current handler has recently taken a position with the Eustis Police Department to begin within the next two weeks where, if the sale is approved, he will continue to work with K9 “Eddy”.  The City of Eustis will assume all ownership of K9 “Eddy” to include fiscal and civil responsibilities pending the purchase and resignation of K9 “Eddy’s” police handler from the Leesburg Police Department.

 

The City of Leesburg will  benefit by the future purchase of a younger K9 that is not attached to any one specific handler, allowing a Leesburg Police Officer the opportunity needed to bond with the new K9 for efficient and safe policing.

 

Options:

1.  Approve the sale of K9 “Eddy” for $6,000.00.

2.  Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate

 

Fiscal Impact

Monies will be transferred from the Eustis Police Department forfeiture fund into the Leesburg Police Department forfeiture fund. A request will be made at a later date for forfeiture monies to purchase future police K9’s.
