Paws on Patrol is a crime prevention scheme where dog owners register to be the ‘eyes and ears’ for their community while out walking their pets.

If you regularly walk a dog, you can join Paws on Patrol to tell the police and council what you see, for example:

  • drug dealing
  • fly-tipping
  • dangerous dogs
  • antisocial behaviour
  • poaching wildlife crime
  • burglary and vehicle crime


By doing this you’ll help:

  • make your neighbourhood safer
  • build community strength and connectivity
  • reduce the opportunity for crime and antisocial behaviour
