Police Chief issues reminder about Leash Laws

Recent attacks prompted this reminder from Police Chief Terry Clark. The law requires people to keep dogs leashed while out in public at all times. The reason for the leash law is to protect people and the other dogs from attacks. Over the last three years our numbers of vicious dog calls have increased by thirty percent. Dog bites can be very dangerous to people and other animals, so please put the leash on when you take your dog for walks or rides.
