Point Pleasant Beach Police has had enough and are cracking down even further to make sure the pooping trend gets wiped up.

"This department is aware of the on going issue with dogs on the boardwalk. We share in the public's concern with this issue and the subsequent issue of dog feces left out in the open. We share in the public's disgust and outrage that someone would allow this to occur."

If you observe any violation of this ordinance, police ask that you let them know about it at 732-892-0500 or
