DOG walkers in East Bergholt and Brantham are being asked to help police sniff out crime as part of a new ‘Paws on Patrol’ initiative.

The scheme, which is being supported by Babergh Council, encourages dog walkers to register with the police and then report any suspicious behaviour they may come across using 101 or 999.

Registration days will take place on March 23 at Needham Lakes and on April 12 at Alton Water, both between 10am and 2pm.
