East Lindsey District Council’s Dog Warden Sue Farenden and Horncastle PCSO Nigel Wass have staged a joint patrol in a bid to tackle dog fouling.
The duo carried out a high visibility patrol in the town where there have been complaints from residents and councillors.
Sue explained: “The joint patrols are ideal as PCSOs are at the heart of their community and are aware of local issues – including dog fouling.
“We need people to give us information about offenders so that we can find out who they are and deal with them appropriately – we need descriptions of people and dogs, and the times and routes when they are walking.
“It is unacceptable that there is this minority of dog owners who have total disregard for their neighbours by not cleaning up after their pets.”
PCSO Wass added: “Dog mess is extremely unpleasant for everyone using the paths and pavements but it is especially unwelcome near the primary school.
“I’m sure that somebody will have seen something so we’re asking local residents to phone in with information”.
