A SCHEME where police will be speaking to dog walkers has been launched by officers in Daventry.

Dogwatch will see PC Wynn Hughes going around on his bike and speaking to dog owners about any issues they might have as well as making sure dogs are on leads. The scheme has already had some success.

Temporary Inspector for Daventry Safer Community Team Paul Valentine said: “It is already in force and it is already paying dividends.

“There was one person who had something to tell us, but she was not sure who to speak to so we were able to help her out.”
