Northamptonshire Dog Watch



The main aim of a Dog Watch scheme is to create a partnership between the local community, police and the local authority. The scheme is a great way of building community relations and working together with the police and the local council to reduce the fear of crime and to improve the quality of life in your area.  As a dog walker you will be out and about at all times of the day and can contribute to addressing quality of life issues in Northamptonshire. You can be the “eyes and ears” of your community.


As a dog walker you will have more time to be observant, look at the environment and actually take notice of what is going on around you. You will also notice if something is out of place or unusual as you use the same area every day. Dog walkers also have a common interest and will often walk together and talk, so there is an opportunity to pass on information.  It is a simple idea and a great way to get community involvement in policing your own environment. The scheme is open to all walkers, with or without dogs.
