To disrupt and engage with nuisance youths in and around the Acre Road area, including Middleton Skate Park, Middleton park/ring road and Middleton park avenue, particularly targeting those engaged in Anti-Social Behavior.  We will continue to deal with this issue by conducting high visibility patrols in the area. We will also use ASB Legislation if required to prevent the youths from returning to the location if warnings are not heeded.

Morley South

To disrupt and engage with nuisance youths, particularly targeting those engaged in Anti-Social Behaviour within the local parks. We will use Anti-Social Behaviour Legislation, such as dispersal orders where proportionate and necessary.

Continue to be pro-active in our approach to speeding vehicles. We will target specific locations as identified by the local community.

We will continue to act upon community intelligence in relation to the use and supply of drugs.

Ward Area – Morley North

Speeding is still the most commonly raised issue in the Morley North ward.  Gildersome in particular as a main arterial route used also by pedestrians.  We have officers trained in the deployment of approved speed measuring devices.  We have been and will continue to deploy such officers in these areas of concern, at the relevant times as identified from community reports and intelligence for speeding. We will enforce the speed limit where there is a persistent problem and advise where there is an emerging, lower problem with minor breaches.  Also, HGV vehicles using a route as a cut through (not there to deliver in the village) is an issue.  We will gather evidence of this and deal with offenders where operational commitments allow. We will liaise with partner agencies to ask them to use their expertise and powers to design out, where possible, the issues with HGV vehicles.   There have been some Anti-social behaviour (ASB) issues that have arisen in the Gildersome area that have involved graffiti on road signs and posters being left around the area and some lower level ASB also.  We are already and will continue to deal promptly and robustly with any such offences where the evidence exists to allow us to lawfully do so.  We are conducting patrols and working with partner agencies to tackle such issues which we will continue with.

In Drighlington, We have had a recent spate of anti-social behaviour involving off-road quad bikes and other off-road motorcycles.  We’ve had a few reports of children lighting small fires on Adwalton Moor and showing other types of ASB.  Thankfully, these are still at a low volume, however, We will continue to deploy patrols into the area and gather intelligence about who these perpetrators are by talking to people in our communities who know or are likely to know such information.  Where we apprehend such individuals, we will seize vehicles from the illegal off road bike users them where we have the powers and take action, which may include prosecution of them for any offences discovered.  The children involved in ASB will be dealt with in partnership with other agencies and risk prosecution if they are found committing offences.

Ward Area – East Ardsley and Robin Hood

To target and take appropriate action against anti-social use of vehicles in and around the Tingley area paying particular attention to specific roads highlighted by community intelligence.  We will conduct regular traffic operations including the use of speed measuring equipment to provide road safety advice and prosecute offenders using Road Traffic legislation and, if appropriate, consider the use of Section 59 Police Reform Act warnings and seizures for the more deliberate and serious offences.

To disrupt and engage with nuisance youths, anti-social behavior in and around the Lofthouse area, with particular attention to the Leeds Road area where local community intelligence suggests drug taking is occurring.  We will liaise with other agencies to provide a partnership approach to deal with such matters through both education and enforcement where necessary.

Ward Area – Rothwell

To provide continued disruption and engagement with nuisance youths causing anti-social behaviour in and around the Rothwell Town Centre and surrounding areas.  We will also use ASB Legislation to prevent the youths from returning to the location if necessary and will engage with parents to provide a longer term solution.

To disrupt and engage with nuisance youths, anti-social behavior in and around the Woodlesford area, with particular attention to the park areas area.  We will liaise with other agencies to provide a partnership approach to deal with such matters through both education and enforcement where necessary.
