Paws on Patrol


by Staff Neighborhood Safety Reporter

You and your dog can become a powerful crime-fighting duo working together for a safer neighborhood!  This is a national crime prevention tool.  The Bellevue Police invite you to become a “Paws on Patrol” partner.

As a dog walker, you are on the streets or in the parks around your neighborhood, multiple times each day. With just a little more awareness, you can be extra eyes and ears, to observe and report suspicious activities.  According to Crime Prevention Officer, Ruby Daly, "If crime is not reported, the police have no way to track the criminal activity and specific crimes within those areas and apply enforcement measures.
