Dog Walker Watch Program

Through the Dog Walker Watch program, citizens and their canine companions can help the Arlington Police Department make a difference in the community.

Dog Walker Watch is an awareness 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 police departments in ongoing community-policing efforts.

Interested citizens are invited to attend an upcoming one-hour class, where they will be trained on how to effectively observe and report suspicious activity. Registration is not required for the classes and participants are asked to not bring their pets.

The Dog Walker Watch awareness program is designed for neighbors who are familiar with their community and who are 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.
