Marshals to penalize Civic Sense Violations - Inputs Sought

Based on your inputs below, some municipal bodies have started taking actions on penalizing citizens for civic sense violations.

With this post, we would like to discuss the concept of appointing Swachhata Marshals in a city who are empowered to penalize people for violations like littering, spitting, open urination/defecation, etc.
How can such a model be implemented so the right people are selected, paid and empowered to penalize violating citizens while eliminating any scope for bribery, leakages and harassment.

We look forward to your inputs!

In last two years of Swachh Bharat abhiyan I have not seen any improvement in terms of citizen awareness, Nagar Nigam duties and cleaning services. Create awareness among the society, create some sort of cleaning competition in a colony, improve cleanliness of public urinals so that people can use it. Just by slogans and publishing of photos of Netas will not serve the purpose. more  
Only Making toilets & blaming on local body s is not important . First we should gather and take responsibility of our own areas.That how to manage the garbage and how to solve the problem of open defection more  
Idea is good if implemented with sincerity But what about actions on employees failing in their duties I am sure some one must be responsible for providing dustbins and periodic collection of garbage. I know areas where dustbins are not cleared months together causing extremely stinking foul smell, breeding mosquito's and other insects spreading disease and health hazards for surrounding habitats. Is the post monsoon jump in viral, dengue chikengonia not attributed to failure of officials of civic bodies and why the swatchh marshals not charge them Actually civic bodies must give a time frame to all societies, markets etc to arrange their own decentralized waste management and during the period, provide them training for waste segregation by organizing workshops. They say no public urination. But do we have public toilets across the city. How such ban can be effectively introduced for nature's call. System are required to be put in place to achieve desirable results more
