Are You A Dog Owner? Dog Walker Watch (DWW) is an awareness program sponsored by the National Association of Town Watch (NATW) and coordinated locally by law enforcement agencies and community organizations that encourage neighbors nationwide to assist local law enforce- ment agencies in the ongoing community-policing efforts. Dog Walker Watch The Dog Walker Watch awareness program in Arlington is designed for residents who are familiar with their community and who are out in their neighborhood on a regular basis, with or without a dog. Unlike a community watch program, Dog Walker Watch requires no commit- ment beyond an individual’s regular routine. Walkers watch for anything or anyone suspicious. If they see something they report it to police or homeowner. Volunteers register with the depart- ment and go through extra training on basic community policing.
