The Arlington Police Department is looking for volunteers to participate in the department’s Dog Walker Watch awareness program.

Dog Walker Watch (DWW) is a program sponsored by the National Association of Town Watch (NATW) and coordinated locally by law enforcement agencies and community organizations that encourages neighbors nationwide to assist local law enforcement agencies in the ongoing community-policing efforts.

There are dozens, if not hundreds, of dog walkers throughout the community at all times of the day. Dog Walker Watch trains these individuals how to effectively observe and report suspicious activity.

The Dog Walker Watch awareness program is designed for neighbors who are familiar with their community and out in the neighborhood on a regular basis, with or without a dog. Unlike a community watch program, Dog Walker Watch requires no commitment beyond an individual’s regular routine.

Residents looking for more information about the program can visit the National Association of Town Watch’s website or they can register on the City’s website.
