Lower Merion is introducing a new community watch program Thursday night that they are hoping will lead to more eyes and ears on the streets.
"Dog Walker Watch" is a partnership between Lower Merion Community Watch and Lower Merion Township Police that is designed to teach residents to be more aware and alert while out walking their pups. Officers will also train residents on how to effectively report suspicious activity.
"Dog walkers can be a valuable resource in helping to make our community safer," said Matt Peskin, President at the National Association of Town Watch.
Training for the "Dog Walker Watch" begins Thursday night at 7:30 p.m. at the Merion Fire Company of Ardmore on Greenfield Avenue.
