On Wednesday, 27 February, the RCIPS and DOA conducted another walkthrough in a local neighbourhood to provide information and advice about responsible dog ownership. This time the officers visited homes on Rock Hole Road and Gresscott Lane, in Central George Town.
The officers spoke to dog owners in the area and discussed with them their responsibilities under the law, including licensing their dogs. Several dogs that had previously been unlicensed were licensed by the DOA staff, a service which is provided free of charge. Once a dog is licensed it will receive an identification tag that can be attached to the collar (pictured above).
This ongoing initiative of the RCIPS and DOA aims to address continued concerns about incidents throughout the island involving dogs that have been allowed to roam freely, in addition to dogs that are not properly cared for.
