Paul met with the Chief Superintendent of Wolverhampton Police Neil Evans on Friday 7 September to discuss the issue of dangerous dog attacks. These have gained increasing attention across national media in recent years. Paul and Mr Evans discussed the number of reported incidents, including any attacks on Guide Dogs over the last three years and the strategies needed to reduce such crimes.
The meeting was held as Paul has received a significant level of correspondence from constituents concerned about the issue.
Paul said "The meeting with Chief Superintendent Evans was very informative and reassuring. The number of reported instances of 'dog bite' attacks across Wolverhampton is very low, given the size and population of the city. It was also very positive to hear that there have been no recorded cases of guide dogs attacked by other dogs in Wolverhampton, which charities such as Guide Dogs UK have been very concerned about in recent months."
