Paws on Patrol keeps community safe
BAPD Paws On Patrol

The next Broken Arrow Police Department Paws on Patrol, a dog walker watch program, will be held at 7 p.m., Wednesday, Sept. 11, at the Public Safety Complex, 1101 N. 6th St.

The program is a community awareness and crime prevention program you can take part in while walking your dog. BAPD invites residents to join and assist the department as an extra set of eyes in the community. This training is for humans only and you do not need a dog to participate.

Dog Walker Watch is an awareness program sponsored by the National Association of Town Watch. This program is designed for neighbors who are familiar with their community and 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 of a daily walk.

BAPD’s Crime Prevention Unit will host a free training session for those interested in joining:

The training sessions provide residents with the skills and abilities needed to become more aware of their surroundings and learn when to report suspicious activity.
Representatives from the Broken Arrow Animal Shelter will be on hand to renew dog/cat registration (current shot records required).
