SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) – The San Francisco Department of Public Works announced Wednesday it will assemble a new team, known as the Poop Patrol, which will be focused on cleaning up human and animal waste throughout the city.

The team, which will be made up of six people – a supervisor and five workers, is part of a pilot program set to start sometime in September, according to public works department spokeswoman Rachel Gordon.
