Fight Crime While Walking Your Dog

By Jim Zepp

The National Association of Town Watch (NATW) has introduced a new crime awareness program called “Dog Walker Watch” (DWW).

The concept is simple.  Most communities have dozens, if not hundreds, of dog walkers who are often preoccupied with texting, chatting, emailing, and phone calls during their neighborhood walks.

Through Dog Walker Watch, local law enforcement officers train these individuals to assist as “extra eyes and ears” and how to effectively report suspicious activity to 9-1-1.

NATW claims the program can turn our area into a safer, more alert community.
