Patrolling the beat on the waterways

TODMORDEN police officers have once again been supporting Calderdale Council in keeping the towpaths free of dog fouling.

Responding to local concerns, officers from the town’s Neighbourhood Policing team have been talking to responsible dog walkers who clean up after their pets - with a warning to those who don’t that they could face a fine.

A fine of £80 can be given to those who fail to clean up after their dogs.
