The city of Palmdale will host a free Dog Walker Watch at Yellen Dog Park, 5100 E. Avenue S, from 8 to 10 a.m. tomorrow.
The city’s public safety staff and law enforcement officials from the Palmdale sheriff station will be on hand for coffee, donuts, dog treats and some great information on how our dog walkers can help make Palmdale a safe place to call home.
Raffle tickets will be given out to the first 20 residents to arrive for a chance to win some great prizes for your pooch, including two $25 gift certificates to Rosita’s Pet Store in Palmdale.
“The residents of Palmdale love their four-legged family members and that means there are dozens, if not hundreds, of neighbors walking their dog throughout the community at all times of the day, all days of the week, in all weather conditions, who are often preoccupied with texting, chatting, emailing and listening to music,” said Ruth Oschmann, Palmdale Crime Prevention Specialist. “Dog Walker Watch encourages these neighbors to assist local law enforcement as extra eyes and ears while out walking their dog.”
“This program enhances the partnership between police and community while providing resources for neighbors to be more aware and how to effectively observe and report suspicious activity and graffiti,” added Kery German, Palmdale Crime Prevention Specialist. “We look forward to seeing you and your pets at this fun and informative event.”
