Lower Merion town watch is going to the dogs

By
On Sunday, Oct. 20 Lower Merion Community Watch, in partnership with the Lower Merion Police Department, will host another Dog Walker Watch training class.

It’s the true sense of multi-tasking.

On Sunday, October 20th from 2 to 3 p.m., Lower Merion Community Watch, in partnership with the Lower Merion Police Department, will host another Dog Walker Watch training class.

The class will be held at Merion Fire Company of Ardmore, 35 Greenfield Ave, Ardmore, PA.  Residents are encouraged to attend.  Trained, well-mannered dogs are also welcomed.

There will be a raffle to win a Ring doorbell.

“There are hundreds upon hundreds of dog walkers throughout the Township,” said Community Watch President Matt Peskin.  “Through Dog Walker Watch, we hope to convert many of those walkers to ‘extra eyes and ears’ for the Police Department as part of the Township’s ongoing crime prevention efforts.  All walkers can be a valuable resource in helping to make our community safer.”

Lower Merion officers will train citizens on how to be more aware and alert while they are out on their normal walks.  Also, they will teach walkers on how to effectively report suspicious activity to 9-1-1 using their cellphones while out with their dogs or just walking in the Township.

Peskin noted that the class is filling up quickly.  Interested residents should contact Peskin at mpeskin@natw.org or visit lmcommunitywatch.org to register.
