Join our Dog Watch scheme

Alert message sent 27/07/2020 13:57:00

Information sent on behalf of Hampshire Constabulary


Dog Watch (DW) is an initiative that encourages dog walkers to be pro-active and vigilant in their area whilst out walking their dogs. This is because they are often the first people out and about in the mornings, and the last ones out at night. They are then able to report any unusual observations, suspicious activity or anti-social behaviour back to the relevant authority.

This includes (but is not limited to):

· Suspicious activity / vehicles

· Graffiti / vandalism

· Nuisance vehicles / speeding

· Anti-social behaviour

· Fly-tipping

· Dog fouling

· Hare-coursing

· Dog related incidents (lost/stolen dogs, livestock worrying)

· Injured animals

· Abandoned vehicles

It’s important to note that at no time will dog walkers be expected to intervene in any incidents. Their role will be to simply report information to the police, council and partner agencies and vice versa, so together the community and authorities can help make neighbourhoods safer.

Members of the public who walk their dogs in the New Forest that are interested in joining the scheme will need to register to join www.hampshire.alert.co.uk and select the 'Dog Watch' group.
