Operation to tackle unruly dogs and wildlife crime in Long Eaton North section gets underway

Posted on 28th May 2015

Police in Long Eaton are vowing to clamp down on unruly dogs and wildlife crime around the Erewash canal towpath as a new operation gets underway.

The campaign, entitled Operation Plimpton, has been launched after local residents raised concerns about out of control dogs, dog fouling, wildlife crime and littering on the towpath, which runs between Lock Lane and Sandiacre town centre.

Officers from the Long Eaton North Safer Neighbourhood Team are stepping up patrols in the area and working alongside partner agencies and local charities in a bid to combat the issues.

They are also hosting two events from 9am to 1pm on Wednesday, June 3 and Saturday, June 6 at Long Eaton Market Place to meet and chat to local residents to raise awareness of the campaign.

For more information about the operation, contact PC Kimberley Palin from the Long Eaton North Safer Neighbourhood Team on 101.
