City Considers Requiring Leashes for Dogs on its Beaches


The Virginia Beach Police Department will be hosting a community forum Wednesday, April 10 at 6:30 p.m. at the Law Enforcement Training Academy (411 Integrity Way) to gather public feedback.

It will be used in considering a proposed change to City Code Section 6.5 (animals on the beach and adjacent areas) for the City Council’s consideration. The proposed change would require all dogs to be leashed on City beaches at all times. Other restrictions in the code would remain unaffected.

Editors note: It would be great if fines for unleashed dogs & not cleaning up were aggressively enforced at our VB Parks too.
