Answer for Dogs and communities

Answered By: 
The Mayor

I am very supportive of the fantastic community engagement work that Battersea Dogs & Cats Home does in tackling irresponsible dog ownership and the problem of status dogs. As you are aware, promoting responsible dog ownership and addressing the unacceptable use of weapon dogs is an important part of my Police and Crime Plan 2013-2016.

My Deputy Mayor for Policing and Crime, Stephen Greenhalgh, has visited Battersea Dogs & Cats Home and MOPAC has regular discussions about their work and about these issues with them.
