We are aware of a number of incidents in recent weeks, across Leicestershire, where dogs have been stolen – or attempts have been made to take a dog from its owner.
We understand the concern that these incidents cause in our neighbourhoods and ask that people remain vigilant and work with us to identify those responsible.
Please find the attached document for more information with Crime Prevention Advice.
We would like to hear from you if you see or notice anyone acting in a suspicious manner. If you have any information please contact us. This includes any adverts for dogs for sale where details about the dogs are limited. If you are buying a dog please be conscious of its physical condition and if there is anything that doesn't seem right please let us know by calling 101 or you can pass on information to Crimestoppers which is anonymous on 0800 555 111.
