Crime boss awards £1,200 to Bewsey dog group

First published in News

CHESHIRE’S Crime Commissioner has awarded more than £1,200 to a community dog group - which teaches owners how to look after their pets.

John Dwyer made the grant of public money to People and Dogs, based at Bewsey Community Park Centre, Troutbeck Avenue.

The group, part of Golden Gates Housing Trust, aims to encourage other owners to be responsible when walking their dogs.

Members take a ‘pledge’ to ensure they look after their animal.

Mr Dwyer believes the cash, from his crime prevention fund, will help stop problems like dog fouling.

He said: “Allowing dogs to foul footpaths is disgusting and an inconvenience for everyone in the community and also comes with serious health risks.

“I want to get tough on anti-social behaviour issues like these, and it’s a pleasure to see people taking an active part in addressing the issue."

Richard Bennet, GGHT enforcement officer, said: "P.A.D. sees a number of partners and residents coming together to tackle nuisance dogs and their owners in the Bewsey and Dallam area. It is hoped that in the near future the group will expand and the pledge will be rolled out to all areas of Warrington."

Could there be a hint of pre-electioneering in this largesse in the hope more than 5% of the electorate will vote next time round?
What next free cat loos for neighbours' gardens and free dog behavioural lessons for dangerous dogs?

The group is part of GGHT so why are they not funding it? Dog fouling is a council issue not a police matter so why waste police money on a none police issue. If he wants to spend my taxes on crime prevention fund a crime prevention scheme like shed alarms that the local police give out. This man is an absolute joke
