Dog Walker Watch

A Crime Awareness Program of National Association of Town Watch: Building Safer, More Alert Communities.


Dog Walker Watch (DWW) is a crime awareness program sponsored by the National Association of Town Watch (NATW) that encourages dog walkers nationwide to serve as “extra eyes and ears” for local law enforcement agencies. There are dozens, if not hundreds, of dog walkers throughout the community who are often preoccupied with texting, chatting, emailing, and phone calls during their neighborhood walks. Dog Walker Watch trains these individuals on how to effectively observe and report criminal activity. The local Police Department and Crime Watch group coordinate the program and sign-up residents, while local law enforcement officers conduct a training class.

We invite you to sign-up for Dog Walker Watch today and turn your area into a safer, more alert community. Just fill out the form below or contact us via email at
