Dog incidents

If your enquiry relates to attacks on people, there is a memo of understanding between Leicestershire Police and ourselves that the Police will lead on these cases and should be contacted in the first instance on 0116 222 2222.

For road traffic collisions involving dogs or dogs worrying livestock in fields then please also contact the Police.

It may be possible to serve Community Protection Notices in respect of dog on dog attacks.  You will however need to have the name and address of the person who owns the dog, be prepared to make a witness statement and be prepared to appear in court should the case be disputed. Contact Yvonne Garraway in Environmental Health for further details.
