Can the police do anything about dog fouling?
It is an offence not to clean up after a dog that has fouled. However, it is not the responsibility of the police but that of the local authority. The maximum fine for this offence is £1000 or alternatively councils can issue a fixed penalty of £50.
If you know someone who allows their dog to foul and fails to clean up after the dog, you should make a note of the time and date of the offence and the details of the dog owner and then contact your local authority who will advise you how to proceed.
