Officers in Greenville keep a close eye on their K-9

GREENVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) – With summer weather in full force, officers in Greenville are keeping a close eye on their K-9 in their vehicles.

A heat-alert system gives officers a heads up when the temperature reaches a certain degree. If it gets too hot in the car, the windows roll down and an alert is sent to the officer.

Officer Brian Neague says with this technology, he doesn’t have to worry about his partner.

“We will maintain a pager system that allows our vehicle to notify us that it has reached a certain temperature. There are two different thermometers in the vehicle and it takes an average temperature in the middle of it so we always know exactly what the temperature reading is,” says Brian Neague.

Neauge often checks on his partner to make sure he’s comfortable and there is water in his bowl.
