Public Priority - Anti-social behaviour - The Moor Allerton Centre is the main hotspot for youth ASB caused by off-road motor cycles, quads and cars along the part of King Lane to the West of The Moor Allerton Centre which is historically an issue which generates calls in the summer months and despite lockdown this appears to be emerging once again. We will address this issue through the use of high visibility, proactive patrols at the key times to reassure the public and be a visible deterrent.
Police Priority - Residential Burglary - The residential parts of the ward immediately north of the Ring Road both to the East and West of its junction with Harrogate Road are particular hotspots and it is believed that the main threat is from offenders travelling in from other parts of Leeds and Bradford. We will utilise crime prevention to target harden and deploy intelligence led patrols at the key times to disrupt and deter offences. The team have now implemented their 'Darker Nights' burglary action plan to help reduce burglary crimes.
Public Priority - Road Safety - There is public concern about the speed of traffic passing along the A58. Collingham and Bardsey being most notable. We will address this issue through the use of proactive patrols in the area using both the speed indicating device to engage and educate the public around the dangers of excess speed and also the pro-laser device to secure evidence for enforcement action.
