Paws on Patrol
It is hoped that Paws on Patrol will build community spirit where dog walkers can contribute towards the protection of their neighbourhoods, reduce the opportunity for crime and anti social behaviour and reduce the fear of crime especially in the vulnerable.

After the wettest April in the UK since records began in 1910, Paws on Patrol was launched in Gloucester Park on May 12th 2012 in brilliant sunshine.
The afternoon was opened by Gloucester Police Superintendent Gary Thompson and the Right Worshipful the Mayor of Gloucester Councillor Andy Lewis. Then followed the dramatic and exciting display of police dogs at work with a commentary from dog handler PC Rich Hunt.
Police dogs are a huge asset to the police. Not only do they deter criminals and safeguard the public (would you want to argue with a German Shepherd?), they also have an amazing sense of smell. A dog’s nose is many times more sensitive than a human’s and so is ideal for tracking or detecting, whether it be drugs, criminals, bombs, stolen property or people who have lost their way.
