[ARCHIVED] Police and Dog Encounters: Help us help you

Montgomery Police respond to all different types of calls for service.  We would like to remind residents that not all pets like our uniforms or understand why we have come to THEIR house.  Here are some tips on protecting your pups and making our encounter more pleasant: 

Protecting Your Pups

  • Crate your dogs before contacting law enforcement or if law enforcement is in the area.
  • Keep your dogs away from law enforcement during times of strife (such as a 9-1-1 call).
  • Securely fix all fences, gates, and screens to prevent your dog from escaping. Overly protective dogs have often escaped through screens, gates, or holes in fences.
  • Tell law enforcement when you notify them, and before they enter the property, that there is a dog present on the property. Let them know in what room or area the dog is being kept.
  • Do not let your dog roam unleashed at any time, especially if you know law enforcement is on the way.
  • Do not leave your dog outside unattended at any time, especially if you know law enforcement is on the way.
