Paws on Patrol
With funding from the Community Safety Partnership, the Street Wardens have launched a FREE initiative called Paws on Patrol aimed at all dog owners.
The Street Wardens believe that hundreds of dog walkers within our district can play a very important role in making our neighbourhoods safer and aim to give dog walkers the tools and confidence to act as 'eyes and ears' for their community while out exercising their dogs.
Dog walkers spend a lot of time in their communities at varying times of the day and evening. They are very likely to recognise when something out of the ordinary is happening.
Please note, WE ARE NOT asking Paws on Patrol members to step in and take action themselves. Paws on Patrol is simply about providing the Police and District Council with information, so together, local communities and authorities can help make neighbourhoods safer.
From 1 April 2016 the Forest of Dean District Council will be charging for the micro-chipping of dogs.
If you would like us to micro-chip your dog, you can opt to have one of our Street Warden team visit your home to undertake the micro-chipping (charged at £15.00 per dog). Alternatively you can make an appointment to visit the council offices in Coleford where we will micro-chip your dog on the premises (charged at £10.00 per dog).
If you sign up to the Paws on Patrol scheme you will receive a 20% discount on the full micro-chipping charge.
