Coronavirus (COVID-19): the policing response and what you need to know

Sheep worrying

We will be actively contacting farmers and smallholdings to promote our Farm Watch scheme and to discuss signage that we have available to encourage dog walkers to keep their dogs on leads.

If you would like to find out more or discuss any concerns you may have, you can always contact your local beat managers by calling them on 101.
