A new police K-9 has been selected to serve in the city of La Vergne.
“We think Turbo will be a great addition to the La Vergne Police Department,” says Interim Police Chief Chip Davis. “It’s important for our department to have good, reliable working K-9s that can help us keep the city and its residents safe.”
A swearing-in ceremony will be scheduled for a Board of Mayor and Alderman meeting once Turbo and Officer Darby’s training is complete.
Turbo will take the place of Sjaak (pron: Jacques) who passed away in 2020 after being shot while he and his handler, Officer Darby, were leaving the La Vergne Police Department.
