Within the last few weeks I've received three reports of Parks Enforcement Patrol officers writing summonses for unleashed dogs. Two were in Prospect Park and one was in Central Park. It shouldn't seem so unusual unless you spend a fair amount of time in the city parks. I can count on one hand the number of times I've seen a PEP officer writing a leash law violation summons in the last 14 years. It's a sorry state of affairs when seeing a Park Enforcement Officer writing a ticket is a noteworthy event. Does the Department of Parks and Recreation think that suddenly writing a few tickets will make their case for changing the leash law more acceptable?
