Davidson Police Department to Offer Dog Walker Watch Program to Residents
The Davidson Police Department invites residents to the first Dog Walker Watch training session on July 11, 2019 at 6:30 p.m. in the town hall board room. [UPDATED: due to an overwhelming response, a second class has been added. That class will be held at 10:00 a.m. on July 11.]
Dog Walker Watch encourages neighbors to assist local law enforcement by acting as extra eyes and ears while out walking their dogs. The program enhances the partnership between police and the community, while providing resources for neighbors to be more aware of their surroundings and how to effectively observe and report suspicious activity.
“We are a community that enjoys being outdoors and physically active,” said Chief of Police Penny Dunn. “Incorporating these activities with your best friend to serve the whole community is an opportunity that fits Davidson and helps the Police Department in our goal to be proactive in preventing crime.”
This inaugural training session is open to the first twenty-five (25) Davidson residents who register, with additional training sessions coming in the future. Please email Officer Kanita Boone with your name, contact number, neighborhood, and address.
