Increase in crime is never a pleasant thing for me to report but, your local Neighbourhood Team, supported by patrol officers, will be out conducting reassurance patrols over the coming weeks so you may see an increase in police activity .

Please remain vigilant and ensure your properties (homes and vehicles) are secure.
If you would like crime prevention advice then please get in touch with our crime prevention officers, Jill and Tracy at or check out the main West Yorkshire Police Website advice page  Advice | West Yorkshire Police
Please report any suspicious activity via 101 and in an emergency please dial 999.

Child Criminal Exploitation

As they're growing up, young people go through lots of changes.  They will naturally become more independent as they develop their own identity and are more likely to be impulsive and take risks. This behaviour is perfectly normal, however organised crime groups can see the young person as someone who can be easily manipulated or intimidated into doing what they want, and this can lead to child criminal exploitation.
