UK Local Goverment Association head-Stop spying for trivial offenses. Sir Simon Milton-No.

There has been growing anger about the methods used by councils to probe minor crimes, such as dog fouling.

The powers were introduced under the Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act as part of the Government’s anti-terror drive but it is claimed some councils are abusing the powers.

This really shouldn’t be shocking. The government pushes intrusive legislation under the guise of society’s protection and people comply. And your freedoms get chipped away little by little…..

It’s for your safety. Does anyone actually still believe that?

    Just when the problem of dog owners allowing their pets to foul footpaths and verges had been eradicated – thanks to surveillance cameras – along comes Sir Simon Milton. He has written to all councils telling them not to use such devices for this purpose. It took years of campaigning before most dog-owners got the message. Sadly many still let their dogs ‘do their business’ without clearing up if they think they can get away with it. Clearly, not a problem for Sir Simon.
