In response to local community concerns, Stroud Green Safer Neighbourhood Team undertook patrols this morning (09/03/2012), in conjunction with London Borough of Haringey enforcement officers. These patrols concentrated in the areas that the council have had the most complaints about recently around Stroud Green Road, Upper Tollington Park, Perth Road, Woodstock Road, Florence Road, Lancaster Road and Victoria Road (and the smaller roads running off of these).
Although evidence of dog fouling was on the pavements, nobody was 'caught in the act'. Lots of dog walkers were spoken to, informed of our actions and encouragingley all of those spoken to had a bag in their posession to clean up after their dogs.
We have more of these operations planned in the coming weeks and months and anybody caught not cleaning up after their dogs will be prosecuted.
