The Bristol Tennessee Police Department is recruiting community volunteers for its inaugural Dog Walker Watch program, a partnership between the public and local police that encourages participants to observe their surroundings and report suspicious activity.

Presented by National Night Out, the same group that promotes police-community partnerships each August prior to the new school year, the Dog Walker Watch program draws participants from 75 million dog owners nationwide who walk their dogs at varied times during the day. Dog ownership is not a prerequisite, however, and anyone who spends time walking outside through neighborhoods or in public areas is welcome to join the effort. 

Those interested, should contact BTPD Community Outreach Officer Chesney Roark at She will respond with information about an upcoming training session, where participants will be given tips for making accurate observations and reporting suspicious activity to the BTPD.
