City of Los Angeles to fine Dog Owners for Walking Dogs without Leashes
Attention dog owners in the Los Angeles area, L.A. City Councilman Paul Koretz said, “The city just needs a little clout,” referring to regulating one of the most frequent complaints by the citizens of Los Angeles aside from urinating in public and garbage dumping on public places. A pilot program for the Administrative Citation Enforcement, it will give the L.A. police and the Department of Animal Services a new enforcement tool to impose fines that bypasses the nities of the court system. Currently officers can only give warnings or launch a criminal misdemeanor case for violators who commit these petty crimes. But enforcement is difficult since officers are reluctant to file a case said Councilman Koretz.
Under the program, initial violators will be fined with $100, succeeding offenses will rose to $250, $500, $1,000 and so on. But officers have the option to issue a warning, the penalty and/or file a related case. Other offenses included in the program are: drinking alcohol in public, smoking in prohibited areas and using fireworks. The program was said to generate around $1.59 million for the city fund once Mayor Eric Garcetti approved and signed its implementation.
