Undercover patrols to catch dog foulers in Sleaford
THE Sleaford Dog Law Enforcement Officer will be patrolling undercover this month in a bid to catch repeat offenders who don't clear up after their dog.
Jayne Loveday, who keeps a note of her findings as she patrols the town, will be targeting the areas that have been most problematic and hopes to catch offenders in action.
In her latest report to the Services Committee at Sleaford Town Council Jayne said: "My strategy for next month is to target certain areas and spend longer in these areas in order to try and catch some offenders and issue fines.
"I will also be patrolling without my hi vis jacket in order to blend in more with walkers and not give any offenders the opportunity to clear up or clear off just because they have seen me coming."

Jane will however wear her uniform and hi vis jacket if any complaints are received in which she would need to go and investigate.
The main target areas that will be patrolled are Mareham Pastures, Castlefield, the Recreation Ground, the police station footpath and the area around Cogglesford Mill.
At the meeting of the Services Committee on Wednesday Councillor Garry Titmus, said: "Sadly, we seem to have dog poo all over the place.
"I like that the dog warden is taking off her hi vis jacket and is targeting particular areas.
"She's doing as good as she can and credit to her."
The officer also noted that full bags of faeces had been thrown into the farmer's field near to the police station footpath and some bags had been left hanging on the fence.
