Following a discussion with local Neighbourhood Watch groups the local police team have set up K9 Community Watch.
Most dog walkers have a certain route, a route which they tend to use on almost a daily basis. Therefore these dog walkers are very familiar with their area and would be able to identify if something was out of the ordinary. The idea of this initiative is not only to engage with dog walkers but to get them on side with the Police.
The more vigilant people we have amongst our community to keep our area safe, the better.
If you are a dog walker and are prepared to be especially aware to keep and eye open you are already doing the job. Remember to report anything suspicious to the police (call 101 or 999 in an emergency as usual).
