Police in Farmington Hills are training their residents to be the eyes and ears that keep their communities safe. A program called “Paw Watch” was launched earlier this year. The idea is pretty simple. People who walk their pets are already making their way around Farmington Hills. If they’re willing, police offer free training to observe and report suspicious activity. It’s similar to a community watch program, but with mobile participants. “It’s a great program, everyone loves the idea of getting their pets involved,” said Monica Kollar, a crime prevention technician with the department. “Getting the residents involved has been very positive.”
