THE WOODLANDS, TEXAS (April 27, 2021) – The Woodlands Township Neighborhood Watch is partnering with the Riva Row Boat House for Paddle with your Pup events from 10 a.m. to noon on May 1, 2021, at Riva Row Boat House, located at 2101 Riva Row in The Woodlands, TX 77380 and June 5, 2021, at Lakes Edge Boat House, located at 1970 Hughes Landing Blvd, 77380. These events will be an enjoyable way to bring the dog for a ride on the water while also getting valuable information on water safety and crime prevention.
These events are part of the Dog Walker Watch initiative, which is designed to promote a heightened awareness of suspicious activity and show how to report it to law enforcement. The program is an additional component of the continued Community Policing efforts in The Woodlands, sharing the idea that law enforcement and our residents must work together.
Crime prevention and water safety information will be available, as well as giveaways, prizes and treats. This is an opportunity to learn what behaviors are suspicious, what information is important, and how to report it. Law enforcement and Woodlands Township Neighborhood Watch staff will provide crime prevention information directed toward dog walkers who act as eyes and ears for law enforcement and for their neighborhood.
Water Safety information will be provided by the Neighborhood Watch staff, and the Army Corps of Engineers will be there with boating safety information. Lone Star Animal Welfare League has donated 8 lifejackets to the boathouse for the pups and will share information about their organization and programs.
The Neighborhood Watch is also raising awareness of water safety and drowning prevention. Drowning is the leading cause of death for children the ages of 1 to 4. Unfortunately, Texas leads the nation in drowning deaths. Come learn about layers of protection: Supervision, Barriers and Education.
