HOUSE BILL 767
AN ACT TO AUTHORIZE THE ESTABLISHMENT OF LAW ENFORCEMENT DISTRICTS IN GUILFORD COUNTY IN ORDER TO PROVIDE LAW ENFORCEMENT SERVICES TO A GREATER EXTENT THAN THAT NOW PROVIDED FOR THE ENTIRE COUNTY.
The General Assembly of North Carolina enacts:
Section 1. In order to provide law enforcement services in Guilford County which services are in addition to or to a greater extent than those financed, provided and maintained for the County outside the corporate limits of any town or municipality, law enforcement districts may be established in the same manner as is now provided for rural fire protection districts by Article 3A of Chapter 69 of the General Statutes, as the same may from time to time provide. Provided, however, upon the levy of such a tax, the Board of County Commissioners shall, to the extent of the taxes collected from such a district, provide additional law enforcement for the district as follows: (a) through the Guilford County Sheriff's Department and applying the taxes collected to the Sheriff's annual budget, or (b) transfer the taxes collected annually to the law enforcement district which shall provide additional law enforcement services pursuant to a plan approved by the Guilford County Sheriff and the Guilford County Board of Commissioners.
Sec. 2. This act shall become effective upon ratification.
In the General Assembly read three times and ratified, this the 8th day of May, 1973.
