Paws on Patrol
Paws on Patrol is a community watch program for residents who regularly walk their dogs through the neighborhood. “Dog Walker Watch” is a program started by the National Association of Town Watch (also responsible for National Night Out). It involves recruiting dog walking members of the community to be extra eyes and ears watching for and more accurately reporting property crimes and/or suspicious activity on their walking route. Our version of the program is “Paws on Patrol,” graciously shared by the Mukilteo Police Department and now used across the Eastside in Mercer Island, Redmond and Issaquah.
