Board approves Harves' resignation

Whitestown — Officer Nate Harves is no longer a member of the Whitestown Police Department.WPD Chief Dennis Anderson said during a board of police commissioner’s meeting last week that Harves sent a signed agreement and letter of resignation. The Reporter has requested paperwork pertaining to the agreement from the police department in accordance with public access laws, but has yet to receive the information.

After unanimous approval from the board, Anderson withdrew his charges against Harves, a K9 officer with the department. In April, Anderson brought before the commissioners several charges, which included engaging in “insubordinate conduct” toward one of his supervisors and a conflict during K-9 training with the Hendricks County Sheriff’s Department, after which HCSD said they would “no longer conduct K-9 narcotics training with Off. Harves as a trainer.”The commissioners were ready to take action during their May meeting, but attorneys on both sides disagreed on how to get rid of the dog, Paco, which ended up delaying any action.

At last week’s meeting, Anderson said the dog would be put up for public auction using a sealed bid process.
