WPD shrinks K9 unit, city looks to donate dog to Fair Bluff

Monday, June 16th, 2014

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — The Wilmington Police dog involved in a controversial bite last fall may soon belong to the Fair Bluff Police Department.

Tomorrow Wilmington City Council will vote whether to donate Kaas to Fair Bluff as surplus property the city no longer needs. The resolution is part of council’s consent agenda, which means it’s unlikely to be discussed at the meeting, unless a member asks for it to be removed from the consent agenda.

Wilmington City Manager Sterling Cheatham says WPD is cutting its K9 unit back by one dog.

“We are reducing the number of K9s in our fleet. That’s what I can tell you,” Sterling said. “So moving one of the animals was the most appropriate thing to do, and we are glad we could find a happy place for him. “

Kaas’s handler, Stafford Brister, was cleared by the SBI and a grand jury of any criminal wrongdoing, but he returned to duty as a patrol officer, and not with the K9 unit following the investigation into his use of Kaas on a suspect following a police chase.
