Myself (Hilton/Etwall/Hatton SNT, Mercia and Melbourne SNT have recently dealt with several incidents involving dogs on our beat areas. Dogs either being loose causing issues in the community, worrying livestock or attacking other dogs

So, to clarify a few things about control :- 

*  Please keep your dog under control at all times, this may mean keeping it on a leash.
*  Dogs dangerously out of control is a criminal offence, a dog is regarded as out of control if there are grounds for reasonable apprehension that it will injure any person, regardless of whether or not it actually does so.
*  Not everyone likes dogs, a dog is not under proper control if it can run over to over dogs and people without responding to commands/recall. Some people keep their dogs on a lead for a reason and another dog running over to it could exacerbate a situation.

To clarify livestock worrying :-

This is an offence. It is often heard “it was only playing” or “it didn’t injure the sheep”

Worrying livestock means (a) attacking livestock, or (b) Chasing livestock in such a way as may reasonably be expected to cause injury or suffering to the livestock or, in the case of females, abortion, or loss of or diminution in their produce. (c) Being at large (that is to say not on a lead or otherwise under close control) in a field or enclosure in which there are sheep.
If a dog worries livestock on any agricultural land, the owner of the dog, and, if it is in the charge of a person other than its owner, that person also, shall be guilty of an offence under this Act. (Dogs (Protection of Livestock) Act 1953)

Please keep dogs on leads when near livestock

Are you, or someone you know, inundated with scam mail? Are you tempted to respond to it? Do you want to help track down the criminals behind scams and help put a stop to their activities?

If you answered yes to any of the above then why not become a Scam Marshal for the National Trading Standards (NTS) Scams Team.
Becoming a Scam Marshal can be very rewarding and fulfilling work. In many cases it has helped Scam Marshals to:
 Save money
 Improve self-confidence
 Assist with investigations
 Reduce the temptation to respond
 Increase awareness of scams
 Educate and help others
 See a reduction in scam mail
