Resolution Accepting the Donation of an Accelerant K-9 from the Virginia State Police to the Hampton Division of Fire and Rescue.

 

RESOLUTION

WHEREAS, the Virginia State Police of the Commonwealth of Virginia, Department of Public Safety, have dissolved their K-9 Accelerant Program and it is their desire to donate the last remaining K-9 to the Hampton Division of Fire and Rescue to aid in the investigation of suspected arson related fires, and

WHEREAS, Arson Dogs can be instrumental in the conduct of an effective fire investigation and a properly trained dog can give fire investigators a significantly greater chance of locating samples of ignitable liquids that will be confirmed by chemical analysis, as well as detect traces on the clothing of suspects and bystanders, and

WHEREAS, the Hampton Division of Fire and Rescue welcomes the opportunity to accept this important tool which will assist our fire personnel on the scene of a fire investigation.

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED by the City Council of the City of Hampton, Virginia that the Arson K-9 be accepted for use by the Hampton Division of Fire and Rescue.

Adopted at the regular meeting of the City Council of the City of Hampton, Virginia held on September 12, 2007.
