As dog owners are regularly out and about in Whittlesey, they are likely to notice anything suspicious or out of the ordinary. Dog walkers tend to be out in the early mornings or evenings when other people are people are more likely to be indoors and because of this, you might see and hear things relating to crime, anti-social behaviour or other suspicious activity.
Members of Dog Watch are asked to be the eyes and ears of their communities, keep each other informed and report concerns to the police via the:
101 if its non-emergency call
999 in an emergency or if a crime is in progress.
What should Dog Watch members report?
For example you can report incidents of:
- graffiti and vandalism
- regular incidents of poor driving, speeding and disobeying traffic signs
- insecure homes
- noise issues
- anti-social behaviour and
- flytipping or street cleanliness issues.
If the crime is happening now or anyone is in danger, please call 999. If it is a non-urgent issue you can contact the Metropolitan Police on 101.
Please be assured the police and council value every piece of information provided through the Dog Watch scheme.
You are able to access the Whittlesey Neighbourhood Watch Site which has a Dog Watch space.
