messageDog Fouling - message from local Police.
Posted by Pugwash March 31, 02:39PM

Received this from SNT.

It has been brought to Police attention that there is dog fouling occurring around the Goodrich School area, SE22. Please be advised that it's illegal and dangerous to public's health, especially for young children as it can cause serious illness. It is the dog owner's or the person in charge of the dog(s) responsibility to clean dog waste properly and dispose of it safely. Failure to do so may render you, the dog owner or person in charge of the dog(s), with a penalty notice of fine. For repeat offenders the Council will prosecute and if convicted then you may face a fine of up to 1,000. REPORT Dog Fouling: [www.southwark.gov.uk]. Send the Council any footage of dog fouling - it's evidence. #DulwichHill

Am glad this seems to be being taken seriously now. It's been a recurring problem for several years, particularly near the junction with Goodrich and Friern.

It's obviously good that the police are taking it up, but surely it's dangerous to public health everywhere? Young children aren't just found around schools!

I think a new law should be put into place whereby dog owners found guilty of allowing their pets to foul the streets are forced to reenact this classic moment of cinema history.

Whilst that's true, the Pareto Principle (80:20 Rule) would suggest that concentrating on areas around schools would have a greater impact on children than random sweeps - given any fixed resource. Poo around schools has a much higher chance of impacting children than just randomly in streets away from schools.

Yes, agreed!
