Detective Sergeant Carl Tutor was honored March 4 at the Fuquay-Varina Town Board meeting for a career with the Fuquay-Varina Police Department spanning more than 30 years in his beloved hometown. Friends, family and colleagues gathered at Town Hall to honor his dedication to community service and protection while also wishing him well as he begins a new chapter of his life.
Chief Larry Smith characterized Detective Tutor as “a dedicated family man and a very faithful member of Hilltop Free Will Baptist Church where he has served as a deacon.”
Tutor is married to Tabitha Mcleod Tutor and they have five children; Mckensie, Caleb, Kendal, and twins Katelyn and Mckala.
“Tutor was born and raised in Fuquay-Varina and his love and knowledge of the town has served the community well,” said Chief Smith.
Tutor’s parents are Paul and Katherine Tutor. In 1978, he graduated from Fuquay-Varina High School and subsequently received an Associate Degree in Police Science from Wake Technical Community College.
Tutor began his career with the Fuquay-Varina Police Department as a patrol officer in 1983 and was promoted to sergeant in 1988. For two years, Tutor served as the Business Liaison Officer. In 2008, Tutor joined the Investigative Division and currently serves as a Detective Sergeant where he focuses on residential and business burglary investigations. Tutor was instrumental in local fundraising efforts for the Law Enforcement Torch Run, a running event in which officers and athletes carry the Flame of Hope to the Opening Ceremony of local Special Olympics competition.
Tutor officially retired on March 1. Officer Tutor said, “It has been an honor to serve and protect the people of Fuquay for these many years.”
