Any bona fide towing service within the corporate limits of the Town of Southern Pines or an adjacent municipality (within fifteen (15) miles of the intersection of Pennsylvania Avenue & Broad Street, Southern Pines) may submit a written request, addressed to the Chief of Police, for consideration to be placed on the Master Tow List.
A “bona fide” towing service is an agency or organization whose primary business includes the towing of vehicles for mechanical purposes or due to collision and that owns or has primary control over vehicles and equipment for this purpose (i.e. tow trucks).
Once a request is received, the Chief of Police will determine if the basic requirements are met. If approved, the department Tow Agency Inspector will schedule an inspection to be conducted of the tow agency to ensure compliance with applicable North Carolina General Statutes, Town of Southern Pines Business regulations and police department policies. Tow agency proprietors selected for inclusion on the Master Tow List will be required to sign a Letter of Agreement consenting to abide by appropriate directives from the Southern Pines Police Department, the Town of Southern Pines or other authorized organizations.
