DOG owners will be slapped with fines if they fail to scoop up dog mess in Stafford as part of a new crackdown.
Stafford Borough Council has introduced dawn and evening patrols and now has an email address for people to shop those dog owners responsible.
Over the past year the council has fined or prosecuted eight dog-owners, with one man made to pay £500 by magistrates.
Now a dog fouling enforcement team will be out and about talking to the public to gather information as well as explaining facts about the dangers and costs of dog fouling.
People can email email@example.com v.uk to give information in confidence about those who do not clean up after their dogs or call 01785 619000.
