Dogs on Patrol is a day run by Neighbourhood Watch and local police beats to educate the public, especially dog walkers, about how to keep a lookout for suspicious behaviour, people and vehicles in our neighbourhoods and how to report that information to police.
Over 16 doggy related displays along with local police and Neighbourhood Watch members will be present. A coffee van, cupcakes and a sausage sizzle will also be on site.
The event will also feature the official opening of the new council basketball court and gym with basketball and gym clinics. Live music will also be on at the event so bring a blanket, sit on the grass and enjoy the day.
Neighbourhood Watch dog tags will also be available for a gold coin donation with Volunteers in Police able to engrave your dogs name and your phone number on the tags to make it easy to return your pooch if they ever get lost.
