It is an initiative that encourages dog owners to be proactive and vigilant whilst walking their pets in their area.
The idea is for dog walkers to act as the eyes and ears for the local community and to report anything out of the ordinary on their regular routes. Because of their local knowledge, dog walkers will notice unusual or suspicious activity and anti-social behaviour.
Joining Dog Watch will give you the tools to report to the relevant authority whilst staying safe.
The scheme is a great way to build community relations and work in partnership with the Police and Local Authorities to reduce the fear of crime, deter offending and improve the quality of life in your area.
